Forty kingfisher nests, bats in Amsterdam


This video is about a kingfisher nest.

Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands. Even in this urban environment, animals live.

This morning, Amsterdam ecologist Anneke Blokker talked about these animals on Dutch radio.

She said about forty kingfisher couples nest in Amsterdam. This Internet page says thirty couples, but may be outdated.

According to Ms Blokker, there are at least eight bat species in Amsterdam; the most frequent species being the common pipistrelle. Maybe there are more species, including the soprano pipistrelle.
