The seven flamingos were spotted on Tuesday at Benthuizen, a day later they were noticed by walkers in Pijnacker. According to nature conservation manager Cor Noorman, this concerns six Chilean and one European flamingo.

The birds are probably from a nesting colony near Winterswijk, just east of the Dutch-German border.
