This video is about Zwanenwater nature reserve.
The rarest of all was a paddyfield warbler, a relative of the threatened aquatic warbler. In June 2008, a paddyfield warbler was banded in Zwanenwater. This species had been recorded only 20 times before in the Netherlands.
In May 2008, there was a Bonelli’s warbler. A species with only 40 previous records in the Netherlands.
Regularly, this year in Zwanenwater, Cetti’s warbler were seen. They are a southern species gradually coming to the north because of climate change.
