This is a Dutch spoonbill video.

Translated from Natuurmonumenten in the Netherlands:
In Waverhoek in the Green Heart, the number of bird species has risen from 56 in 2006 to 143 in 2007. Natuurmonumenten has raised the water level in March 2007. That has changed the forty hectare nature reserve into a true birds’ paradise.
At the beginning of this month [March 2008], Waverhoek has also been discovered by thousands of black-tailed godwits, which have returned from Africa. They use the area to revalidate after a five thousand kilometer journey.
Also, many northern lapwings and scores of ruff have been seen. Spoonbills, which will breed in the surroundings, are looking for food in Waverhoek. Visitors can admire the birds from the vantage point and the footpath around the area.
