In January we went hiking in Hitland a couple of times, one of those times was Saturday the 18th of January. The weather here in The Netherlands is very warm for this time of year, so instead of ice skating we plan to go hiking regularly. During our visits to Hitland we saw various types of birds. The most notable one was the Great Egret also known as the White Heron. Although the Grey Heron is very common in The Netherlands the White Heron is seen here less often (although it is not rare). We didn't spot the White Heron before in Hitland, but this year we've seen a few of them on several different occasions. It is nice to see that the diversity of birds is increasing in Hitland. Other birds we saw this year include the Gadwell, the Common Pochard and the Red-crested Pochard.
Bellow are some pictures of the 18th:
