We met before sunrise in the Mickey Mousestreet, Almere. We first drove to a viewingpoint with a good view over the Oostvaardersplassen. In the first daylight we saw two white tailed sea eagles in a tree (a bit far away). This is the breeding pair of this area for the past six years. This year they raise two chicks. In the air a lot of birds were going south, like skylarks, woodlarks and song trushes.

We also saw lots of red deer walking on this dutch savannah. We drove to some farmland nearby to spot a female or young hen harrier. On the fields we saw a group of a few hindred greenfinches. The stock doves were unfindable at the moment. There were plenty of wood pigeons.

On the second stop at the Oostvaardersplassen we saw different sorts of ducks like: pintails, common teals, Earasian wigeons and northern shovelers. On the field we saw grazing greylag gooses, barnacle gooses and greater white fronted gooses.

In a treetop on the Oostvaardersveld (Oostvaardersfield) there sat a beautiful great grey shrike, later on we saw a second one next to the dike. Near the visitorcentre we made a shor walk and see and hear great tits, blue tits and norhern willow tits.

Our next goal was to see the pretty bearded reedlings. At the Julianapad (called after a dutch Queen that visited the Oostvaardersplassen frequently) we saw a lot of bearded reedlings, they fly like little helicopters. The Oostvaardersplassen was a very important area for the spreading of this sort over western Europe.

From the dike we saw a marsh harrier flying. This is a breeding bird in the area with at least 40-50 pairs. A few stay over the winter. On a parking place we saw a northern wheatear.

Our last stop was in Almere near the harbour, we saw there little grebe and common pochards.



The weather was excellent this morning, a clear blue sky and a bit cold. We have seen 62 birdspecies!
