This 31 July 2018 video is from the Noordsvaarder, a sandy plain in the west of Terschelling island in the Netherlands. It shows a ringed plover couple with their youngsters.
Warden Jacob Jan de Vries made this video. He counted four ringed plover couples with seven youngsters in this area.
Good news! Most tourists respect the birds’ nesting area and walk around, not through, it, thus making the nesting success possible.
These young birds are this year’s second brood. The first brood was in April. The first brood chicks are still around, and already look almost like adults.
Good with a lot of new birds arriving to the North sea area.
Yes, I hope the second brood young birds will grow up as well as the first brood.
