New vlog: Foxes

For the next part of my (Dutch) vlog, I went to the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen. This is a nature reserve in the western parts of the Netherlands which is used for filtering the drinking water of part of Amsterdam. But that was not the reason for me to go there, of course. The area is also known for its Red Foxes and Fallow Deers, both very used to human presence.

Red Fox

And I was not disappointed. It took a while before we had found them (or did they find us?), but then we could enjoy several different foxes up close. Clearly used to humans (who are allowed to roam around freely in most of the area) and sometimes even fed (which of course is a bad idea, let them find their own food), they did come really close. We even ended up having two foxes fight nearby. Anyhow, great to see these animals this close.

We did also see several Fallow Deer, but more on them in another vlog.
