Migration birds trail: from Zaanse Schans to Den Ilp

After a two-month break, I continued with the long-distance trail the Trekvogelpad (Migration birds trail) at the end of February 2021. Via a small detour through Zaanse Schans, I pick up the official trail just outside Wormer. After this I follow the trail through the Engewormer polder, the Jagersveld and the Oostzanerveld to the Twiske nature reserve and recreational area. Halfway through the Twiske, I stop my hike and take the bus back home from Den Ilp.

Great rivers trail: from Kinderdijk to Hendrik-Ido Ambacht

Today I have yet another plan: to photograph the windmills of Kinderdijk at sunrise. Therefore I decided to walk the part of the Grote Rivierenpad between Hendrik-Ido Ambacht and Kinderdijk in the opposite direction. If the sunrise is disappointing at this time, I have another chance next time. To make the hike a little longer, I also added an extra round trip through the Crezéepolder near Ridderkerk.
