Netherlands-August 2019

I returned home from the Netherlands on the 28th August having spent 4 days photographing wild birds at a forest setting in the Noord-Brabant district of the country. I was principally there to photograph the Goshawk and I was certainly not disappointed. While patiently waiting in a forest hide I managed to see 2 juvenile female Goshawks' at different times as they devoured a couple of pidgeons and later drank at a reflection pool. There were also a good number of interesting smaller birds that came to the pool to drink and clean their feathers. On my last day my time was taken photographing a pair of Great Crested Grebes that were taking good care of their chick that was perched on their backs and catching small fish to feed each other and the chick. More photographs will shortly be available to see in the Gallery section of this website.
