Hillegom —

A Hume’s leaf warbler, a rare bird in the Netherlands, was spotted this Monday near the botanical garden in the Hillegom district Elsbroek. The small green-gray bird with yellow eyebrow stripes is only sporadically seen in our country. He is originally from the Far East: Afghanistan and environs.

Earlier in January, in Noordwijkerhout a glossy ibis was spotted. And in Alkmaar, a Baltimore oriole caused a stir among birders.
