Good red-backed shrike news

This is a video of a red-backed shrike (and whinchats) in Sweden.

Translated from the Dutch ARK conservationists:

Sunday, August 24, 2014

In the nature areas of ARK Natuurontwikkeling in Three Countries Park near Vaals village this year no less than five red-backed shrike couples nested, a substantial part of the Limburg province population. In 2011 the first pair was discovered and then we already expected that there would be more. Apparently the grazed rough nature is attractive for this rare bird. Development of the Nature Network Netherlands appears to deliver exceptional results here.
