Colour rings in Belgium (mainly gulls), plus other wildlife (birds, insects, plants, ...)
Sunday, January 6, 2013
Today I went to see some local scarce birds: a female Eider was a good inland bird (present since yesterday), and 6 Bewick's swans were a good bonus. The last week of 2012, I saw about 200 of these swans in the north of Belgium, where they are a common winter bird. Among them were 3 Whooper swans, of which I put a picture below too.
Female Eider, nice inland bird.
