More shorebirds nest on Ameland island


This shorebird video is from Australia.

According to the Dutch Waddenvereniging, 2011 has been a good year for nesting shorebirds on Ameland island.

Oystercatcher breeding couples rose from 1367 in 2009 to 1619 this year.

Black-tailed godwit couples rose from 393 in 2009 to 410 in 2011.

Redshanks went from 381 to 428.

Unfortunately, northern lapwings suffered from the dry spring this year on Ameland. 200 couples less than in 2009 nested.
