Lizzvh made this video.
Last year it seemed that the sea eagles might not breed this year, maybe for the first time since 2006 in the Oostvaardersplassen. We thought that because the nest last summer during a storm was blown off its tree. It looked for a long time like the birds would not build a new nest, although previously it had been proved proved once that they can make a new nest in a very short time.
The last time the nest was ready within one month. Last week my colleague was in the field, and saw to his delight that close to the location where the nest was last year, again a white-tailed eagle was building a new nest.
On 26 and 27 October 2015, big grazing mammals were counted from helicopters in Oostvaardersplassen national park in the Netherlands.
The results became known today.
This video from the Netherlands is called Red deer rut.
Starting today hikers in Oostvaardersveld nature reserve may encounter red deer. Via a tunnel under the railway line, the red deer from the “Triangle” [in Oostvaardersplassen national park] now have the ability to go to the Oostvaardersveld. For [Heck] cattle and [konik] horses from the Oostvaardersplassen this does not apply. At the Praamweg road additional signs have been posted to alert motorists about the risk of big game crossing.
This video from Norway shows a golden plover in summer plumage.
He counted over 5,000 plovers, mainly golden plovers. And quite some goshawks. A molting peregrine falcon. A female hen harrier. Also buzzards, merlins and kestrels. And the resident white-tailed eagle couple.
