Which birds do Dutch farmers know?

This video from Britain is called The plight of our farmland birds.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

Research by the University of Leiden and BirdLife in the Netherlands shows that farmers are best at recognizing the lapwing. Only one percent of farmers do not recognize this bird. Also white stork (96%), starling (95%), black-tailed godwit (91%), wood pigeon (89%) and barn swallow (82%) are recognized by the majority of the farmers. tree sparrow (20%), linnet [see also here] (15%), spotted flycatcher (15%) [see also here], whitethroat (8%) and icterine warbler (7%) are the least known among farmers.

British farmland and wildlife: here.

May 2012. Rescuers have saved a young starling stuck in the bottom of a fat ball bird feeder in a garden in Eastbourne. Volunteers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) used wire cutters to free the young starling from the encasing wire: here.
