Evening at the nature reserve Vejlerne

We arrived a few hours before sunset at the observation-tower, with the great view over the meadow of Bygholm Vejle. I was lacking the tele-power and decided to concentrate my effort into getting a photograph of a formation of flying geese. The birds on the first image is actually a formation of cranes, on the last shot the grazing cows are accompanied with at least 20 herons on the meadow.

The nature reserve Vejlerne in the north-western part of Jutland covers about 6000 hectares, 1/3 are open grazed meadows, 1/3 are reed beds and 1/3 is open water. Today Vejlerne has the largest Danish breeding population of, among others, the greylag goose (over 1200 pairs) and in the autumn Bygholm meadow is the largest Danish resting place for cranes.
