The Netherlands-Polder Westzaan
Regularly I explore the botanical treasures of the Polder Westzaan; mostly on parcels with a swampy soil, spread out over this Natura 2000 reserve. I enjoy soaking up their distinct smell, due to plant species like Sweet vernal grass (Anthoxanthum odoratum-gewoon reukgras). In my humble opinion it is also rewarding to explore them from above, with kite and camera, attached to my kite's line and hanging only 2 till 5 metres above ground level. In Polder Westzaan there's only one parcel where one can find the pink flowering Cross-leaved heath (Erica tetralix-gewone dophei). The red color of Common sundew (Drosera rotundifolia-ronde zonnedauw) is also recognizable here, as well as the bright green peat mosses (Sphagnum sp.-veenmos) and the darker green hair mosses (Polytrichum sp-haarmos). © Tom Kisjes
