Birds of Rottumerplaat island, new report


This video says about itself:

13 October 2013

A short tour on the uninhabited island Rottumerplaat, one of the two Wadden islands of Groningen province in the north of the Netherlands. The island is access forbidden for people, only a handful of researchers and bird counters (which also was the reason of my visit) can enter the island occasionally.

Wardens Jasper Zoeter and Tim van Nus report from Rottumerplaat in the Netherlands. Except for wardens, this is a desert island.

This year, two buzzard couples nest in the island’s few trees, on the central dune ridge. That is the first time for this species. There were some magpie and carrion crow nests too.

The gray lag geese nesting season is already almost over because of the mild spring weather. For spoonbills, eider ducks, and others on the island, it has just begun.

Rabbits are rather numerous.
