Spoonbill and plover news from Vlieland island


This video is about two Kentish plovers in Cornwall.

Warden Carl Zuhorn reports about birds on Vlieland island in the Netherlands.

This spring, so far there are about 160 spoonbill nests at five places on Vlieland. Some spoonbills are still returning now from spring migration.

On the Vliehors, the west of the island, there are three Kentish plover nests.

  1. They are related species. However:

    “Although it was long considered to be a subspecies of the Kentish Plover, recent genetic research strongly suggests it should be regarded as a distinct species, and both the American Ornithologists’ Union and the International Ornithological Congress recognise it as such.”
