Rare vulture in the Netherlands

This is a video about an Eurasian black vulture in Mongolia.

A rare Eurasian black vulture has been photographed in Friesland province, northern Netherlands, this Wednesday.

While it is in the Netherlands, it is the country’s (and Europe’s) biggest bird of prey; even bigger than sea eagles which started nesting again in the Netherlands a few years ago after a very long absence.

In 2005, the Eurasian black vulture Carmen stayed for months in the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve. Unfortunately, a train killed her. Now she is, stuffed, in Naturalis museum in Leiden.
