The Netherlands: first hobby nest in Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve


This is a hobby nest video.

From Dutch Staatsbosbeheer:

Nature reserve Oostvaardersplassen [in the central Netherlands] has a new breeding bird species: the hobby (Falco subbuteo). …

This is a beautiful addition to a long list of birds of prey nesting in Oostvaardersplassen, like buzzard, goshawk, kestrel, hen harrier, marsh harrier, and, recently, the impressive white-tailed eagle.

The list of birds of prey wintering here is still longer.
