  • The used equipment


    The Canon EOS 1DX is the flagship of the Canon selection. The high ISO settings with low noise

    helps to achieve higher shutter speeds.

  • The used equipment

    The newest Canon 500 mm ISII lens is in my opinion the most versatile lens in the Canon Selection. 
    The lens is light enough to photograph flying birds out of hand.
    I only use a monopod what works well for me.

  • The used equipment


    I use the new Swarovski ATX/STX 95. This has a 30 - 70x zoom and is crystal clear at all magnifications.
    The ideal spotting scope for migration counting!

    I use the Swarovski EL 10 x 42 Swarovision. This has an extremely clear picture and is not heavy.

The year went fast and our annual Big Day on January 1 was back on the program. The team this year consists of Alwin, Pieter and Maartje and myself of course. With Pieter and Maartje I celebrated New Years and they stayed over in Uden. Alwin would pick us up at a quarter to seven in the morning. A little drowsy because of the necessary drinks I was outside around quarter past six to put some tuff in the car when I heard 2 Robin’s singing in full, the first specie of the year was in the pocket.

2015 02 19 Grijze Junco 106 voorpagina

2015 this time did not begin as usual with a Big Day at the first of January. Because of the surgery I was still too weak and had a lot of pain. On January 3 I ventured for the first time outside and near Uden the first species of the year were credited. Being outdoors and the birds felt excellent and it was not long before I dared the first twitch of the year. On January 5, the Oriental Turtle Dove in Vlaardingen was visited and a tour threw the province of Zealand was added. This went well so a Red-breasted Flycatcher, which was found in Winterswijk, was a must for the month list. The birds gave me the distraction I needed and I was therefore often on the road. In late January the counter stood at 155 species with species as Lesser Scaup, Eurasian Hoopoe, Bufflehead, Long-legged Buzzard, Spotted Sandpiper and Little Bustard.

Pallid Harrier (Circus macrourus) - Picture made in the Brabantse Biesbosch Pallid Harrier (Circus macrourus) - Picture made in the Brabantse Biesbosch Pallid Harrier (Circus macrourus) - Picture made in the Brabantse Biesbosch After the Palearctic there was time to take a long lie the next day. The Pallid Harrier which was discovered yesterday in the Brabantse Biesbosch was reported again in the morning. A nice option for the afternoon, at least when it stopped raining. Around noon it was dry and I got in touch with Thijs if he wanted to join me.

Green-winged Teal at the Lauwersmeer


European Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola) - Photo made in the Lauwersmeer Red-necked Grebe (Podiceps grisegena) - Photo made at the harbour Lauwersoog Rosy Starling (Pastor roseus) - Photo made in Kollum Good weather was predicted and at the Lauwersmeer a Green-winged Teal was reported. No kind which you immediately have to do but there were some other nice species in the area so a day trip was planned. At 8 o'clock in the morning I picked up Harry Claasen and we drove first to a Rosy Starling in Kollum which is sitting there for a while.

Quiet days at the Kamperhoek


Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus) - Photo made at the migration site Kamperhoek Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) - Photo made at the migration site Kamperhoek Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius) - Photo made near Medemblik The weather forecast for the weekend seemed very good. Northeast wind, and it would be warm, a classic spring migration weekend. The expectations were high, how different would it be. Saturday morning at 5 am I drove toward the Kamperhoek where I agreed with Alwin.
