Birding

There are several recent sightings of a female Luzon Water-redstart  (Rhyacornis bicolor) at Do´s Exploratory on Ameland. The bird is not shy and is often heard singing from the top of a Black Lace Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) who happens to grow there.

Dr. Do whybrow herself made a beautiful sketch of the site and confirmed the determination. This is the first sighting of this rare vagant on the island.
