Brugge is In a Rush last Friday, a brown shrike was discovered, a species that had never been to Belgium and seen. But that’s not the only new one of a kind. Just last month, five rare species have been spotted in the vicinity of Zeebrugge and the Sea. “Severe winds and the birds, of course, a bat. They are lost,” said Natalie Sterckx from Natuurpunt.

in The past month have been in the area of the Heist and Zeebrugge are all amazing rarities set. The most notable species was a izabeltapuit (Zeebrugge, belgium), a Siberian sprinkhaanzanger People, a roodoogvireo People, a Daurische or Turkestaanse shrike (Rush) and brown shrike, although in order to use. Does not happen to attract the birds to a pack of fans to the area of the port of Zeebrugge in belgium. They try to use big lenses, the observations have to do it, because of all the new types of plots for our corner of the world to come, then there are perhaps too many to mention.

Of course,

“Why, there are just as many extreme rarities show up, it is not entirely clear,” says Natalie Sterckx from Natuurpunt. “Birds of a course to be hit by bad weather conditions. Strong winds, possibly caused by global warming, it may be the young of course to have a hit. We do not happen to be dwaalvogels. They are lost, and the search for points of reference. In general, it is to be a young bird that is still not a lot of trekervaring have. The older the birds, it is assumed that the right in the direction of be able to continue as part of the annual trek between the areas and the countries in which they spend the winter.”


, But this statement is certainly not conclusive: for example, the brown shrike, which is a Friday in the Heist was found in a bird. “For those species that come from Asia, and get lost in a westerly direction, continue to fly, the Sea as a natural barrier, said Sterckx. Most of the birds do not fly like the sea, as they do not break. They stop at the shore line. They are looking for Zeebrugge, belgium, for the port during the night brightly lit. Birds in the night draw, the light will be attracted. Maybe it’s because they’re in a brightly lit area during the night to eat will be able to search.”

The brown shrike was a Friday, and the 452ste of a species which in Belgium has been established. Brown shrikes breed mainly in Eastern Asia and in Central and Eastern Siberia, and Mongolia to Eastern China and Japan. The bird has been already noticed, in Europe, for example in the Netherlands, and France. Or, in a few years many of the more exotic species in our side fly to, you know, they Natuurpunt is not. “We can be hard on the birds, and asks,” smiles Natalie Sterckx.
