Horned larks wintering on Terschelling island


This 8 February 2018 video shows a flock of horned larks wintering on the nascent dunes of the Noordvaarder sandbank on Terschelling island in the Netherlands. These birds are looking for glasswort seeds to eat.

Twites and goldfinches winter there as well. In the sand dunes of Terschelling, snow bunting flocks winter now, warden Joeri Lamers reports.
