“The” long-tailed duck is back! Such is the joyous reaction of birders in the Gooi region. It is an old friend: a male long-tailed duck wintering annually on the Gooimeer lake in Huizen in North Holland. On 19 December, for the first time this winter it was seen at the Huizen jetty. This is the eleventh winter in a row that the long-tailed duck resides there. The winter of 2002-2003 was the first time.
