PILE  OF  DUNG …

that's what it's perching on, this Yellow-crowned Wagtail (Engelse Kwikstaart; Englische Schafstelze; Bergeronnette flavéole; Motacilla flava flavissima)

there were a few of these birds present.
the main visual difference with our more common Yellow Wagtail is the head plumage: more olive-yellow than blueish-grey.
it is the shortest tailed of the European wagtails.
it breeds in the UK and along the English Channel coast; winters in Africa.
the bird shown is a male (females have lighter colors)

around this time of year you may find them here, usually in coastal areas.
this photo was made some time ago in the dunes near 's-Gravenzande (South Holland prov.).
this part is a fenced off area because red Highland cattle is grazing there. and those can produce massive dung heaps ! ;-)

gear: Canon 30D; Canon 300mm f2.8; 2x extender
handheld; estimated focus distance around 35 mtrs

The Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus) is a lapwing or large plover, a wader in the family Charadriidae. It has characteristic loud alarm calls which are variously rendered as did he do it or pity to do it leading to colloquial names like the did-he-do-it bird.Usually seen in pairs or small groups not far from water but may form large flocks in the non-breeding season (winter).(Wikipedia)

Hovering Osprey

As the boat approached the tree, this Osprey took off from the nest and hovered about six feet above it for about 5 seconds.
