Rare red-breasted merganser nest on Terschelling island


This video is called Red-breasted Merganser courtship display.

Wardens of the Boschplaat nature reserve on Terschelling island in the Netherlands report seeing a red-breasted merganser with ducklings.

So, a case of nesting for this species, rare in the Netherlands.

Only about 35-45 couples nest in the Netherlands usually. Mostly not in the Wadden Sea region, though there was a case on Griend island.
