Grey-headed Lapwing, Netherlands, Workum, 27-06-2019


A phonescope of the first record of this species in The Netherlands. It seems to be a different individual than the Norway/Sweden bird of this spring so a second in NW Europe. Maybe the Turkish bird of 2018?

Monk Vulture, Belgium, Hees, 21-05-2019


This Monk Vulture was born in spring 2017 in a colony in SE France. This colony was the result of an reintroduction but is self-sustaining for many years now. It flew (with two Griffon's) above The Netherlands today. There is a discussion if this will be a countable record.
