First ever glossy ibis nest on Vlieland island?


This video is called Glossy Ibis at Chapel Amble – Wildlife in Cornwall.

Warden Anke Bruin reports from Vlieland island in the Netherlands about a glossy ibis couple in Kroon’s polders nature reserve.

The normal glossy ibis nesting time, in the Mediterranean, is May-July.

Could this be the first time ever of a glossy ibis nest in the Netherlands? Ms Bruin asks.

In 2012, a glossy ibis couple started to make a nest in the Netherlands, but did not continue.
