Whooper swan and ibis on Vlieland island


This video is about a whooper swan family in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen nature reserve in the Netherlands.

Anke Bruin, warden on Vlieland island, reports on rare birds there.

Recently, Ms Sophie van Amstel saw a glossy ibis flying there.

Last week, there was a whooper swan on a meadow. It was alone. Apparently, it had lost its family. Whooper swans usually don’t migrate individually.
