Breeding birds of Noord-Holland in the Netherlands


This video from Britain says about itself:

Lesser Redpoll (Carduelis cabaret)

A very uncommon visitor to our feeders, there have been at least 2 in recent days. This species is regarded by some as a sub-species of Common (or Mealy) Redpoll (Carduelis flammea). Also in the video are a female Eurasian Siskin (Carduelis spinus) and a Great Tit (Parus major). Recorded in West Wellow, Hampshire.

According to the recently published Atlas voor Broedvogels van Noord-Holland, 196 bird species nest in the Dutch province Noord-Holland.

Six new exotic species now nest in this province: Canada goose, Egyptian goose, ruddy shelduck, mandarin duck, ruddy duck, and ring-necked parakeet.

Not breeding anymore in the province: crested lark. Almost stopped nesting: ruff, whinchat and lesser redpoll.

Returned after absence as breeding birds, partly helped by human re-introduction: white stork, raven, barn owl, and peregrine falcon.

Peregrines nest in Norfolk for only second time in 200 years: here.
