Peregrine falcons, other birds in Oostvaardersplassen national park


This video from Britain says about itself:

28 September 2014

Steve Leonard discovers just how fast a peregrine falcon can dive – by jumping off a hot air balloon.

Henk Hupkes, bird counter in Oostvaardersplassen national park in the Netherlands, reports about this winter.

26 ravens were counted on a February day; many, for a species recovering from extinction in the Netherlands.

Thirteen peregrine falcons were counted; also a species recovering from extinction, now that DDT has been banned.

There were many golden plovers, northern lapwings, and dunlins.
