After we moved to the east of the country, we are very much getting used to the quiet and wide country side. With everything that comes with it: farmers busy on their land, deer running around the house, nice walks in the forrest across the road, etc.

And then all of a sudden, our neighbour tells us a pair of flamingos have been spotted in a local area, where farmland was converted to a nature area. So after work we jumped in the car, and drove to Vennebuiten, and yes, we were lucky – they were still thereā€¦
