today I walked with a friend in the amsterdamse waterleidingduinen close to Zandvoort. In this area which has been used to gain Amsterdam's drinking water lives the biggest deer population of The Netherlands. They are not at all shy and browse quietly close to the passers by.
we also passed by a hotel for insects, this place was created to give them shelter for nesting and during the winter
the walking pathes were mostly quite and not many people were around, the landscape offered some variety between light woods and more savanne-like open landscape. For me a s a newbie to this area to deer was the mos striking however, there were also birds singing and surely to be watched and the pathes along the water were just lovely in the autumn sun.
