[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the polder meadows of Zuid Holland these three oystercatchers were having a fight.

North of Leiden is an area of lakes and hay meadows that is a paradise for birds. Besides oystercatcher, redshanks and gruttos breed there and often the white stork can be spotted. These oystercatchers I spotted on my way home in the evening. They were also making a lot of noise during the fight. Finally one oystercatcher left the group of three, looking for another territory.
