Social pressure resulted in twitching the long-staying Lesser Yellowlegs but it was well worth the visit, an extremely confiding bird!
|More birders than birds at Vatrop, actually only 1 bird present!|
A Grey Phalarope was displaced by the storm several weeks ago, and was also still present along the IJsselmeer. Simply amazing that these tiny birds prefer to winter on the open ocean.
Of course we did not find any Iceland Gull at Harlingen, Kornwerderzand, Breezanddijk and Den Oever. We did see 10-thousands Greater Scaups, Snow Bunting, several Red-throated Divers and 2 Black Brants.
