Birds of Terschelling island, the Netherlands


This Dutch video is about the Boschplaat nature reserve.

Translated from the blog of warden Gert Jan Blankena of Boschplaat nature reserve on Terschelling island in the Netherlands. About the Koffiebonenplaat sandbank near Terschelling, 18 May 2013:

We counted about 290 Eiders, 450 Oystercatchers, 400 Dunlins, 120 Brent Geese, 36 Bar-tailed Godwits, 46 Sandwich terns, 2 Avocets, 10 Whimbrels and a seal. There was much more to see, like Sandwich terns, Arctic Terns, Common Terns and Little Terns. But because of the distance they were impossible to count.

A sequel to this is here. And here.
