Birds of Vlieland island, the Netherlands


This is a video from Canada about red knots.

Anke Bruin is warden on Vlieland island, the Netherlands.

She reports on counting birds there last weekend.

People counted 304,000 birds along the coastline of Vlieland. That was more than on many other similar counts; probably, because of the high tide.

The most numerous species were red knots: 64,714.

Then, dunlin: 64.000.

The third spot was for the black-headed gulls.

Less numerous, but remarkable, were Arctic skuas. 25 of them, including a group of eight birds on the Vliehors.

Another rare bird was a red-necked phalarope.
