2021- Koudekerke - #sunflower fields forever!
(no PW )


the BIG 2 + 1! and tourists...
   humpback WHALE at the Walcheren coast + video !   

YESTERDAY @ Westkapelle

yesterday morning 2 men from Weskappel were in an inflatable rubber boat at sea, fishing, when they heard a whale exhale.
they followed the sound, and the whale came closer. and leapt...

one of them had been on a whale safari on Iceland once, but seen none, and was over the moon to find one in his "own backyard".

great Leo! (the pic). is the dove still there?
(breeding Eurasian dove > protected! > do not disturb, go away! hehe
discovered only minutes before knocking the building down!).

a few years back a Flushing buzzard stopped the dutch army! i.e. the marines from invading Vlissingen. (not that they were eager to do so).
protected bird -d- refused to leave -its nest in- a tree, tree couldn't be cut down, (even had to be supported since all of its colleague trees around it had been cut down), 'thus'... roundabout + road to the -yet to be built- army barracks couldn't be constructed!
wat-gebeurt-er-toch-allemaal-aan-het-eind-van-de-A58?





2017- war zone! the army was coming...
(of course I also shot the bird-nest-tree + all of the turmoil)


but in the end the marines stayed where they were, yayyy! Everybody relieved and very happy!
for a short while ...before we knew what was next: megalomaniac plans for 'Law Delta' aka an -extreme!- high security penitentiary institution + a bunker courthouse -d- for heavy serieus criminals / terrorists only, in lovely rural Ritthem. yet commonly known as Alcatraz @ sea -d-. so much for Flushing's reputation! bet tourists will 'love' it too. as we don't. THX? -d-.
Vlissingen needs MORE BIRDS !!!

Another great bird story, thanks Ine! I think the dove and the little ones are taking their time, and I'm glad they are because it gave me time to make this shot.
