Bird news from Rottumerplaat desert island


This video from Britain is called Taking a look at terns 1: Common vs Arctic Tern.

Warden Bart Ebbinge reported on 8 July 2015 from Rottumerplaat desert island in the Netherlands.

On 30 June, all three young peregrine falcons had fledged.

Already on 24 June, all young pied wagtails had fledged.

There are at least 11 little tern nests on the island. Also common tern and Arctic tern nests; and ringed plover and oystercatcher nests.

Update 31 July 2015: here.
