Barry Farquharson
Thanks, Hans. Hope you get some more good birds over there too.

Incredible photos Hans 👏
Briana Fisher
That would have been amazing to see in person
Hans van Kersbergen
The cry of fear from the mouse. I remember. Also have heard it from a frog. When you see them eat animals whit no noise, it is a different scene. 😊🙈

@vogelsgezien the last Redshank I saw a few weeks ago in Holland. I think that they all migrated now. #tureluur #redshank #birdsseen #BirdsPlantsandMore
