Our boat/bike trip was not only through medieval villages but also across dikes and nature trails. The following photos were taken as we biked along the countryside.
They're not very visible (unfortunately I don't own zoom lens) but there are storks in this field.
Can you see the stork among the hay rolls?
Finally I had the good fortune to come across this fellow who let me come quite close before he flew off, but only a little ways away.
