Rare shrikes, bee-eaters in Dutch nature reserve

This spring 2018 video is called Birding in France – highlight: Red-backed Shrike.

Dutch conservation organisation Natuurmonumenten reports that this summer, two rare bird species nested in their Duin en Kruidberg nature reserve.

This summer, there was a red-backed shrike nest there; for the first time since 1978.

There was a bee-eater nest as well.
