20180609 Half Day Leiden

Saturday morning I (Rein) picked up Pernille and her friend, from Denmark, at the Leiden central station for half a day birding in the area of Katwijk. First we went to Meijendel. We made a short walk into the forest, we saw Common Redstart, Spotted Flycatcher, Nightingale, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe and Red-crested Pochard.

After a short coffee break at the parking place we took off to Lentevreugd. At Lentevreugd we had some good sightings of Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting and Stonechat. From the dunes we heard a Cuckoo calling and also a Green Woodpecker.

During the drive to Poelgeest we stopped by a nest of White Storks in Oegstgeest.

At Poelgeest the Spoonbill we hoped for was there and showed very well, also a male Garganey. There where a lot of Black-tailed Godwits present and two Redshanks. A very cooperative mother Shoveler showed her pretty ducklings. From the reed we heard Marsh and Reed Warbler singing. We ended with 65 different species of birds on this morning tour.
