A trip to the Landtong, Rozenburg ZH.

It’s been a long time since my last visit. First I went to the Caland Canal to see the Aegir up close. Then I went to the reservation where the Highland Cattle is. 3 of them were in the meadow besides the motorway. I didn’t see them in the reservation, except for 1 in the distance half behind the trees. So I took pictures of the scenery and the gooses that were around. It was a good hike, about 3,5 hours with good weather, a bit hazy when I left, but during the hike the sky cleared.

First White Stork at Park Esdoornlaan, Rozenburg ZH, Netherlands 2018 April 17

This morning I spotted the first White Stork in my village. About 1,5 year ago a stork’s nest was build. Sometimes a Great Cormorant used it as a watchtower.
The nest is in the Esdoornlaanpark and you can see it from the street and the houses

Herons at Park Esdoornlaan, 2018 April 3 and 7

When I went for a hike this afternoon I saw a heron at the small ditch in the park. Looking for food. After a while he flew away, fortunately I could capture him during his flight.

When I moved on I saw another heron at the toad pool. Finally he got something, a toad or a frog, I can’t tell the difference.
When I tried to get closer he moved a couple of meters so I stopped closing in on him. On the pictures you can see the legs of the toad outside his beak.

Another album with a heron.
Same park, a heron eating a fish and then walked to the other side of the bridge.
