From the top of the Mountain to the bottom of the swap

Last weekend I decide to go for a walk in the Ooijpolder. Polder is the Dutch word for land reclamation; according to Wikipedia we claimed 1/5 of our country form the sea. Or like the English saying: God created the world, but the Dutch created Holland. But in the Ooijpolder we decide to give some land back to the river and we have give God a change to make something of it. And he did the Ooijpolder is nice natural landscape with a lot of wildlife.

After 20 pictures the battery of my camera died. So this must be it. But I will definitely go back this spring when the water is low and the signs of spring can be seen and maybe search for some wild foods.
