Golden plovers like mild winter weather

This video from England says about itself:

Golden Plovers.

Marshside RSPB Reserve, Lancashire, September 2009

Golden plovers like the mild weather of this winter in the Netherlands; according to Ecomare museum on Texel island.

If winter in the Dutch Wadden Sea region is cold, like in 2010 and in 2011, then usually only a few hundred golden plovers stay there. The other golden plovers fly further south.

However, this winter, 21,000 golden plovers were counted there.
