Good Dutch black grouse news

This video is about black grouse in Norway during the mating season.

Black grouse have nearly become extinct in the Netherlands.

Now, only a few live in Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park in the east.

Some grouse were brought in from Sweden to prevent the species from becoming extinct.

Translated from the national park site:
