Common linnets, spoonbills and terns on Dutch desert island


This music video is called The Common Linnets – Calm After The Storm (The Netherlands) 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. With this song, the Common Linnets (Ilse DeLange and Waylon) will be in the song contest final, tomorrow.

This video is about a real common linnet singing.

Common linnet song audio: here.

One of the places where these birds sing now is Rottumerplaat desert island in the Netherlands, according to a blog post by the wardens Martijn Bunskoek en Tim van Nus.

They report that so far, there are less spoonbill nests on the island than last year, but more birds may arrive still.

Arctic terns, common terns and little terns have arrived back from migration. They are in an amorous mood sand nesting is expected to start soon.

There are about 500 eider duck nests this spring.
