Birdpix weekend 2008

The tradional “Birdpix” photo event is held in the first weekend of October on Terschelling, one of the Dutch islands in the Wadden Sea. Birdpix ( is an Internet community for bird photography.
This year the weather was rough and stormy, sometimes resulting in bizarre skies. On the first photo you see heavy clouds in all shades of gray above the Wadden Sea, with just a touch of sunlight. The next photo demonstrates the process of early natural dune formation. As for bird photography, I want to show the ‘reptilian’ head of a Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo/Aalscholver) and a delicat vagrant of the Siberian taiga, viz. Yellow-browed Warbler (Phylloscopus inornatus/Bladkoning). The latter was photographed in the rain.
