Shelducks molting on the Wadden Sea


This video is called Common Shelducks – Tadorna tadorna.

Ecomare museum on Texel island in the Netherlands reports that this late summer, 60,000 shelducks are molting in the Dutch part of the Wadden Sea. That is more than usually.

In the German part of the Wadden Sea, molting shelduck numbers have declined from 200,000 to 150,000. Probably, many ducks have moved to the Netherlands.
