Migratory bird brings African, Dutch school children together

This video from England is called WWT Slimbridge: Common Redstart.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

The common redstart nests in Europe but winters in the Sahel, including in Burkina Faso. The curriculum ‘The Incredible Journey‘ will therefore also be offered, in French, to pupils in Burkina Faso in 2014. Children of Belemtisse primary school in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso and the primary school ‘De Oanrin’ in Twijzel [in the Netherlands] will then be in touch. Together, this way, they will get to know better each others’ world and also the world of the common redstart, which flies back and forth between them.
