Cattle egrets join Dutch cattle


This 2014 video from the Netherlands is about a cattle egret and lambs.

In Dutch Naardermeer nature reserve, a Galloway cattle herd grazes.

Recently, a group of cattle egrets joined the cattle.

The egrets eat insects, disturbed by the cattle.

Cattle egrets are originally from Africa. They have spread to other continents, though they are still rare in the Netherlands.
