Rare little curlews in the Netherlands

This video says about itself:

Little Curlew (Numenius minutus) Filmed at Archerfield Airport, South-East Queensland, Australia November 1994 using Canon EX1 Hi8 video-camera.

The little curlew breeds in northern Siberia. It usually winters in, or not so far from, Australia.

It is a very rare vagrant in western Europe.

Today, 17 were seen near the seashore of Petten in the Netherlands; between common sandpipers (see also here) and gulls.
