Rottumerplaat desert island bird news


This video is about a cuckoo calling in Turkey.

The wardens of Rottumerplaat in the Netherlands report that thee are three buzzard nests on this desert island. They feed on rabbits.

There are also nine carrion crow nests.

The cuckoo is also present, feeding on hairy caterpillars.

The barnacle geese have left the island by now for their spring migration to the Arctic. So have many brent geese.
