New Dutch spoonbill colony

This is a video of spoonbills feeding near Texel island in the Netherlands.

Translated from the Dutch conservationists of Natuurmonumenten:

May 3, 2012

In the Nieuwkoop Lakes a second location of breeding spoonbills has been discovered. According to ranger Martijn van Schie, this is positive news. “It is not only safer for the population, now possibly more breeding pairs will come.”

The special spoonbills come for the fourth consecutive year to breed in the Nieuwkoop Lakes. Before that, the birds did not nest in the area for 30 years.
