Eurasian treecreeper expansion news


This video from Sweden is called Eurasian Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris).

Eurasian treecreepers are the most common treecreeper species of the British isles and eastern Europe. However, in the Netherlands, especially the west, the short-toed treecreeper is the most common species.

Today, Dutch Vroege Vogels TV reports that Eurasian treecreepers are expanding in the south and east of the Netherlands. In Twente region in Overijssel province, about 10-15 couples now nest year after year.

Like the middle spotted woodpecker, also expanding in the Netherlands, this species benefits from changed forest management, in which old and dead trees are removed less often.
