Soon, front lines hundreds of...

Carnival season 2024 is now under way across Europe and the Americas. These pre-Lent festivals, in many cases a blend of local pagan and Catholic traditions, usher out winter and welcome in spring.

Het is iets over zes als de wekker gaat. Het is in huis net zo stil en donker als buiten. Ik ben eigenlijk al lang blij, nu de dagen korter worden komt dat de zelftoegestane hoeveelheid nachtrust van een vogelaar ten goede. Op de autoradio kondigt de kalme stem van de nacht-dj de schreeuwerige ochtenddj aan. Gelukkig ben ik net voordat de laatste b...

Ik kijk graag naar overvliegende vogels. Vooral roofvogels hebben dan mijn aandacht, met name de combinatie met vogeltrek vind ik fascinerend. Dat leidt ertoe dat ik als ik buiten zit in het trekseizoen (lees: maart – november) mijn camera binnen handbereik heb liggen. Zo ook laatst, toen ik op een doodnormale woensdag zat te lunchen in de tuin. Ee...

Het is al een tijdje rustig op dit blog. En dat komt niet doordat ik weinig met vogels bezig ben, of weinig foto´s maak. Integendeel, sinds ik in november een nieuwe camera + lens combinatie (Canon R7 + RF100-500mm F/4,5-7.1, voor de liefhebbers) maak ik meer vogelfoto’s dan ooit. Het is de combinatie van weinig tijd (maken) en ook wat zoeken naar ...

Terugbliktijd! 2022 is het jaar waar er voor mij iets veranderde in hoe ik in de hobby sta. Ik hield een ‘groene jaarlijst’ bij, een lijst met vogelsoorten die ik zonder CO₂-uitstoot zag, en focuste dus op alles wat er in de buurt zat. Het leidde tot een jaar waarin mijn ‘jaarlijst’ het laagste aantal ooit was, mijn levenslijst nota bene korter wer...

Het is inmiddels eind maart, dus mijn ‘groene jaarlijst’ is nu bijna drie maanden oud. Ik merk een verandering van hoe ik in mijn hobby sta. Daarover zo meer, maar laten we beginnen bij het begin.

Het einde van het jaar is tijd om terug te blikken. Terugblikken op een jaar dat anders verliep dan iedereen had zien aankomen. Een jaar met zware periodes voor velen en zelfs absolute dieptepunten.

Notenkrakers zijn voor mij echte vakantievogels. In de Ardennen, het Zwarte Woud, en de Alpen heb ik ze regelmatig gezien. Misschien wel de mooiste kraaiachtige, met die witte stippen op die bruine ondergrond. Zijn belangrijkste wapen is zijn snavel, waarmee hij behendig eetbare dingen uit moeilijk bereikbare plekken peutert. Nootjes, zaden, dennen...

Als het weer in het najaar herfstig wordt trekken vogelaars naar de kust. Een fikse noordoosterwind zorgt dan voor een spektakel aan het strand, met vele langstrekkende zeevogels die je normaal gesproken alleen vanaf een boot kunt zien. Jagers, pijlstormvogels en jan-van-genten kun je dan vanaf het duin waarnemen. Nu is dat dus nogal weersafhankeli...
