Kingfisher hunt

Filed under: March — Hennie van Heerden @ 10:53 pm

Today I drove to the centre of Holland in search of Kingfishers. Dennis had seen them digging out a new nest in a park in Utrecht. Although we posted next to the fallen-down tree for hours, no Kingfishers were in sight so we decided to call it a day and come back later. As there had been an article in the newspaper that young tawny owls were spotted in a park nearby so we decided to go and have a look. We found 4 owl-chicks high up an old pine tree. Wonderful to watch those little – eh, dare I say it? – still very ugly little owls. Unfortunately they were extremely hard to photograph as they were very well hidden by hundreds of little branches. Still, we had a lovely day!
