Bar-tailed godwit, in Waterland

I was interviewed for a local paper yesterday about what I will be doing if and when the weather gets better.

Cycling to Waterland was my reply, as there we can find the migrating waders in the meadows, including Europe's largest population of bar-tailed godwits.

It is easy to get there, a cycle underneath the railway, through the Flevopark and over a couple of (long) bridges and one is in the middle of the countryside. Meadows full of flowers, incests, dragon-flies and snails, occupied by bar-tailed godwits, redshanks and lapwings, amongst the sheep and the cattle, divided by ditches full of swans and ducks.
