Holland 2016 - 5 The Weerribben

Giethoorn and nature reserve the Weerribben are best visited by boat. Great for a social event!

In the wetlands: Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea, Purperreiger)

Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica, Blauwborst)

Reed Bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus, Rietgors)

And to everybody's joy a very friendly family of Mute Swans (Cygnus olor, Knobbelzwaan)

Far away in one of the water fields was a  Crested Grebe (Podiceps cristatus, Fuut) carrying babies on its back.

Every country has children who like catching water creatures during the holidays
