Birds in wetland Holland preview
VOGELS in wetland HOLLAND
Sijmen Hendrik s
The Netherlands are in essence a large river estuary. Rhine, Meuse and
Scheldt drain through the wetlands of the Low Countries into the
North Sea. The dynamics of sea and rivers have been strictly limited
over the years. Despite this, water determines the image of a large part
of the Netherlands.
And where there is water, there are birds.
The photos in this book show the birds of wetland Holland and the
landscapes that they live in.
