Description

This afternoon in the meadows near Leiden in The Netherlands I saw a Eursian Spoonbill. I'm used to seeing birds from the stork and heron families. I've seen Spoonbills in Africa, but this was the first time I saw a Spoonbill in The Netherlands :-)

24 April 2011 - Meadows near Leiden, South Holland, The Netherlands

Black-tailed Godwit / Grutto (Limosa limosa),
subspecies: European Black-tailed Godwit / Grutto ( Limosa limosa limosa.

In spring around 90% of European Black-tailed Godwits in North-western Europa are nesting in The Netherlands. In the 1990's there was a decline of 50% in the Black-tailed Godwit populations. Luckily some meadows are now protected areas in the brooding season. IUCN's Red List for endangered species now lists this species as Near Threatened.

Description

13 May 2011 - Cardinal beetle / Roodkopvuurkever (Pyrochroa serraticornis).

The insect is named Roodkopvuurkever in Dutch. Vuurhaantje is probably an unofficial name used at some places in The Netherlands. It's a Cardinal beetle. Scientific name Pyrochroa serraticornis. In English not to be confused with the other beetle that is named Cardinal beetle. Pyrochroa coccinea has a black head and is a bit more common than the red headed version I observed. There was a whole bunch of these beetles where I was strolling through the countryside near Leiden in The Netherlands. This is the season or month to spot Cardinal beetles!

Description

Green frog in the Pelophylaxv genus. Three possible species (ID please!):
P. ridibundus - Marsh Frog (NL: Meerkikker),
P. lessonae - Pool Frog (NL: Poelkikker),
P. kl. esculentus (hybrid of the other two) - Edible Frog (NL: Bastaardkikker).

It was hopping around on the road just outside town at 21:30 and sat still as we approached with the dogs. Was happy to have his photo taken with my phone.
