Wildcat back in Dutch province after centuries


This is a video about a parrot crossbill at Stabrechtse heide nature reserve in the Netherlands.

That bird now will have to look out, not only for feral cats

Dutch regional TV Omroep Brabant reports today that a wildcat was recorded by a camera trap at Stabrechtse heide.

This, warden Janneke de Groot says, may be the first time since the Middle Ages that a wildcat has been seen in Noord-Brabant province.

Not so long ago, also after a long absence, wildcats came back to another province, Limburg.

And now the wildcats have apparently gone further west. Maybe using the new wildlife corridors, Ms de Groot says.
