Three photographers documented wildlife highlights in The Netherlands.


Mark Hamblin (UK) travelled to Oostvaardersplassen, a wetland and grassland area reclaimed from the sea in 1968, where a herd of Konik horses, closely related to the original wild horse, along with Red deer and Heck cattle maintain the 2,000 hectares of grassland. He concentrated on documenting the horses' behaviour.


Jari Peltomaki (Finland) photographed birdlife, particularly avocets, on the island of Texel and Florian Mollers (Germany) documented Great cormorants in Ijsselmeer.
