Bird migration on Terschelling island

This video is a documentary about bird migration and their stopovers in the North West of England.

It is autumn bird migration season on the northern hemisphere now.

Warden Jan Bunnik on Terschelling island in the Netherlands reports that during five minutes on the Groene strand beach, he saw 2 rough-legged buzzards, 1 red kite, 1 peregrine falcon, 2 kestrels and about 50 golden plovers.

Near the Formerum beach, Bunnik saw a big flock of goldcrests coming in from the sea. Exhausted from the journey, one of them landed on the first thing available: Jan Bunnik’s coat!
