Honey buzzard eating wasp larvae


This 7 September 2017 video shows a female honey buzzard called Walien at a common wasp nest in a hollow pollard willow tree in the Zutphense IJsseluiterwaard in Gelderland province in the Netherlands.

Walien eats the wasp larvae to get strong enough for her autumn migration flight to Africa.

Stef van Rijn made this video.
