Spoonbills nesting in Leiden, the Netherlands


This video shows an Eurasian spoonbill (and grey lag geese) in Hlohovec (Czech Republic).

There are big spoonbill nesting colonies in the Netherlands. Like in De Geul nature reserve on Texel island with hundreds of nesting couples.

Some Dutch spoonbill colonies are much smaller.

This blog already reported that in 2014, there were three spoonbill nests in the grey heron colony in Cronesteyn park in Leiden.

And in 2015, again three spoonbill couples nested there.

Will they do that again this year?
