kwelder

The Dutch word ‘kwelder’ means salt marsh, land on the outside of a dike that is regularly flooded by the tides. This is near Harlingen, a city in the northern Netherlands, in the province of Friesland at the Wadden Sea.
Picture taken at the end of the afternoon. The setting sun made the water sparkle.
It looks like the birds are picking up diamonds. Pretty.

The water birds are certainly enjoying feeding from the saltmarsh there must be a lot of small life living in the mud

This would be a great bird watching area as it is marshy! Great to see some of them, all so well focused!

Do they have salt marsh lamb in your country Bep, it's a greatly desired flavour over here. More expensive too, even more than ordinary & that's still expensive! Lovely seeing these birds feeding in the late afternoon sun.
