This video from the Netherlands is called Black-winged Stilts, Himantopus himantopus, 1 July 2015, Landje van Geijsel. Guus van Duin made the video. This was probably the first time ever that young black-winged stilts hatched in the Amsterdam area.
From BirdLife, about England:
The Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project will safeguard local wildlife and communities from rising sea levels, including providing a habitat for the arrival of species from further south in Europe, such as Black-winged Stilt, expected to colonise southern England as the climate continues to change. Additionally, the Kentish Plover, a wading bird which became extinct as a nesting bird in the UK, could possibly return with the conditions being created at Wallasea. The Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project is a long-term project and will require a further seven million tonnes of soil to complete.
The Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project, north of Southend, is helping to tackle several climate change impacts, including creating conditions for colonising species, replacing habitat lost to rising sea levels and reducing flood risk to local communities. The project is also moving forward the science of landscape engineering by creating inter-tidal habitats on the largest scale seen so far in Europe.
