Getting Ready for Spring

Little Ringed Plover spying on the muddy photographer

Even though the temperatures at night are still well below zero and Easter will be colder than X-mas this year, the birds decided they start preparing for spring. The Magpies (Ekster) behind our house are busy building their nest – sometimes carrying the craziest branches to their nest… Two White Storks (Ooievaars) are collecting nesting material in front of our house every morning. Other birds, like the Black-tailed Godwits (Grutto) seem to have stopped for some feeding days, whereas the Little Ringed Plovers (Kleine Plevier) probably already look for breeding grounds. All in all birdlife seems to finally get into motion 🙂 .. By the way – as I am writing this blog, snow is falling again… Spring ?!

    Hallo Hans,

    Mooie foto’s weer, vooral de natuurlijke kleuren van de Grutto foto’s zijn erg fraai.
