May 2011 part 3: Eijsderbeemden; Maasplassen; Arkenheem; AWD

The Eijsterbeemden just south of Maastricht, has a population of Konik horses.Most of the time they are just eating or doing nothing, but this time in an evening in May, I found them quite active.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now and then I go to this nature reserve near Roermond called the Maasplassen. This time I  found a family of Long-tailed Tits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again I went to Arkenheem. I knew that there were lots of Black-tailed Godwits around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I visit the "Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen" in May. You can find a new spices of fox there: the Backpack Fox. Some people feed some foxes here.  Now the foxes become very tame. Altough it is forbidden to feed wild animals in The Netherlands ( I did not feed them)  I found it nice to make some photos of them.
