Oostvaardersplassen

Ons land heeft een natuurgebied dat uniek is in Europa: de Oostvaardersplassen. In het moerasgebied tussen Almere en Lelystad is alles veel en groots. Duizenden ganzen en watervogels, maar in sommige maanden ook wolken van vlinders en velden vol goudknopjes en Jacobskruiskruid. Wilde runderen, paarden en edelherten doorkruisen de vlaktes, vossen verschalken op klaarlichte dag […]
