Concentratie van Boomvalken Falco subbuteo op de Kop van Goeree
De Takkeling , Volume 23 - Issue 2 p. 154- 156
In the dunes of Goeree, a multitude of pools, small lakes and canals provides an attractive habitat for dragonflies. On 5 September 2014, a total of eight Hobbies were registered in this area, i.e. two hunting for dragonflies in the dunes, four on the beach (three sitting on the beach, one flying around) and two in the nearby village of Stellendam. As at least one of the birds was a juvenile carrying a ring, some birds may have been fledglings from a local breeding pair. However, it cannot be excluded that migrants were also involved, profiting from the large food supply during a stopover. No Hobbies were recorded during a short visit on 11 September.
