Dutch spoonbill breeding 2011 figures

This is a video about a spoonbill trying to eat a fish, which turned out to be too big.

The Dutch Spoonbill Working Group reports that this year, 2332 spoonbill couples have nested in the Netherlands.

On Texel island, at least 510 couples have nested in 2011. Maybe some more, as some spoonbill nests are well hidden.

The biggest spoonbill colony of Texel is in De Geul nature reserve, where 416 couples have nested.
