Bird news from Rottumerplaat


This is a water rail video.

Wardens Jasper Zoeter and Tim van Nus report from Rottumerplaat island in the Netherlands. This spring, there is a water rail nest with at least three chicks.

On 22 May, they found a Kentish plover nest with three eggs. A species which for years had only nested rarely on the island.

Not a good Arctic tern nesting season: only three couples.
