Bearded vulture over Dutch Ameland, Schiermonnikoog islands

This video shows adult and young bearded vultures; and some griffon vultures and ravens, in Spain.

Dutch NOS TV reports that this afternoon, a young bearded vulture flew over Ameland and Schiermonnikoog islands. For some time, a buzzard flew along with the vulture, showing the big size difference.

This vulture has a transmitter, showing it is originally from central France. Bearded vultures are very rare in the Netherlands.

I have been to Ameland and Schiermonnikoog, but I never saw any bearded vulture there. Though I did see them in Aragon in Spain.

New wetland for birds on Ameland: here.
