Dutch bird atlas counting started


This is a video about birds in the Netherlands in January 2013.

BirdLife in the Netherlands reports that work for a new bird atlas in the Netherlands has started. It will take three years.

The last time there was such an atlas was in 2002.

The counting started in a few areas in the Netherlands, of wintering birds.

Here is a list of which bird species were present in most areas (total: 615) during December 2012 and early January 2013:

1 Carrion crow 576
2 Blackbird 572
3 Great tit 567
4 Buzzard 560
5 Chaffinch 557
6 Magpie 553
7 Wood pigeon 544
8 Blue tit 539
9 Jackdaw 537
10 Mallard 535
