Purple heron winters in the Netherlands


This is video about a young purple heron. It winters in a meadow near Bleskensgraaf in the Netherlands.

Usually, purple herons are migratory birds, wintering in Africa.

But not this bird. So far, the winter has been mild. But very recently, it became colder. Let us hope this heron will survive.

A. Strootman made this video.
