Another day in Paradise

Filed under: June — Hennie van Heerden @ 1:54 pm

Again a beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky.

The Oystercatchers were really busy courting and we made it a sport to kill the boat’s motor long before we reached the mudflats they were fouraging on, letting the boat float gently closer. A trick that really worked well and often enough we ended up on the same mudflat without disturbing them.

In may the abundant willows in the Biesbosch start to shed their fluffy seeds and the surface of the water is covered with millions of white dots. A beautiful sight to see all the waterbirds swim amidst that.
