Bird migration from Spitsbergen to Spain


This video is called Pied Avocet – Recurvirostra avosetta.

In Golden Raand magazine, published by the Groninger Landschap conservationists in the Netherlands, fall 2013, p. 24, there is an interview with a warden of Polder Breebaart nature reserve.

It turns out that many Breebaart avocets have been ringed in Spain.

Some barnacle geese, seen in Breebaart, are from Svalbard; others from Siberia.
