World BirdWatch today


This video is called Birdwatching, Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia.

World BirdWatch today, with people in many countries and places counting migratory birds.

In the Netherlands, the top ten of bird species was at 1pm:

1 Chaffinch 59.394
2 Starling 21.539
3 Oystercatcher 8.544
4 Meadow pipit 7.999
5 Dunlin 3.988
6 Lapwing 3.808
7 Wigeon 3.800
8 Great cormorant 3.722
9 Redwing 3.081
10 Black-headed gull 2.731

Where I was (Corversbos), already over 1300 birds of 38 species had been counted, including grey wagtail.

I saw five common crossbills. A group of a hundred great cormorants. Two buzzards. And a buzzard harrassed by a carrion crow.
