Today on Dutch radio, for the first time a new piece of music by composer Henk Doeke Odinga was played.
Both the sound and the movements of these birds inspired Odinga.
The music starts with part of the French national anthem, the Marseillaise. That is because, if there is a harsh winter in the Netherlands, lapwings migrate south to France.
