Spoonbill, heron nests counted on Texel island


This is a video about a spoonbill (featuring a grey heron).

Warden Erik van der Spek reports today that for the first time this year, spoonbill nests in De Muy nature reserve on Texel island have been counted from the air.

49 spoonbill nests were counted. There will be more, as birds are still arriving from the south. At the end of May, there will be another count.

In De Muy were three grey heron nests as well.
