August 2021 - Family Birding Weekend

On 20 & 21 August I organized a birding weekend for the members in my family who share my passion for birds.
Together with my mom, brother, sister and two nephews we visited Dwingelderveld National Park, Diependal Nature Reserve, Fochterloërveen Nature Reserve, De Onlanden Nature Reserve and Lauwersmeer National Park.
We were lucky to have nice sunny weather and we saw a lot of good birds like Short-toed Eagle, Osprey, Western Marsh-harrier, Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Red-backed Shrike, Red-necked Grebe, Common Crane, Eurasian Spoonbill, Bluethroat, Greater Whitethroat, Black Redstart and many others.
At Dwingelderveld National Park we were extremely fortunate to find a Common European Viper chasing prey in the water!
