|opmerkingen||25 June to 20 November, Hompelvoet, Grevelingen, Goedereede, Zuid-Holland, and Brouwersdam, Schouwen-Duiveland, Zeeland, adult, photographed (the late A van den Berg, H Baptist, L Schrove et al). Both records are considered to refer to the same bird. A new species for the Netherlands, accepted 27 years after it was observed. At the time, all observers considered all pelicans to be escapes. However, both pelican species breeding in Europe have good vagrancy potential and since Dalmatian Pelican is a vagrant to Hungary and Italy (Cramp & Simmons 1977), a wild origin is considered a realistic option (contra Cramp & Simmons 1977). Up to 19 centuries ago, the species was a breeding bird in the Netherlands (cf van den Berg & Bosman 2001) [Annual Report 2002]. 1975 25-26 June, Hompelvoet, Grevelingen, Goedereede, Zuid-Holland, photographed (A van den Berg, J Beijersbergen, R Beijersbergen), and July 1975, Haamstede, Schouwen-Duiveland, Zeeland, and 9 August, Grevelingen, and 23 September, Hompelvoet, Grevelingen (A van den Berg, G Slob), and 14 October, Springersdiep, Grevelingen (A van den Berg, F Mayenburg, G Slob et al), and 6 November, Springersdiep, Grevelingen (H J M Baptist, A van den Berg, L Zwiers), and 18 November, Middelplaten, Veerse Meer, Goes, Zeeland (H J M Baptist), and Grevelingen (A van den Berg, L Zwiers), and 20 November, Grevelingen, and 15 December, Dortsche Biesbosch, Dordrecht, Zuid-Holland (L de Munnik), and 17 December, near Herkingen, Grevelingen, Dirksland, Zuid-Holland (A van den Berg, F Mayenburg, G Slob et al), adult. These are extensions to the dates and localities mentioned in van der Vliet et al (2003); for the sake of completeness, all known observations of this long-staying bird are listed, including those published before. Apparently, this bird (which was in the company of a Great White Pelican P onocrotalus during the first three weeks of its stay) returned to the south-west of the country in late summer 1976 after its mid-winter visit to south-western Friesland in early January 1976. On 18 November 1975, it was seen at two sites c 25 km apart within just 1.5 h (Enno Ebels in litt); although this may suggest that more than one individual was involved, there is no proof for this assumption [Annual Report 2004].|
