Over a million meadow pipits migrating


This video, taken in the Miraflores Park (Seville-Spain), is about a meadow pipit.

From Dutch bird research organization SOVON:

From Sunday 20 to Wednesday 23 April, over a million meadow pipits were counted at counting spots in the Netherlands and Flanders and were recorded at Trektellen.nl. The well known counting posts where concentrations of birds pass, noted most birds; especially at Breskens in Zealand (426.000 meadow pipits, 132,000 of them on Monday and 268,000 on Tuesday!)
