opmerkingen 24-30 March, Schiermonnikoog, Friesland, immature, white morph, photographed, videoed (L Peters et al; Peters 1998, van den Berg & Bosman 1999; Birding World 11: 133, 1998, Birdwatch 7 (71): 64, 1998, Dutch Birding 20: 92, plate 50-51, 1998). This magnificent bird, the second white morph after one in December 1909, generated the second-largest birdwatching crowd ever; after its appearance on a television news broadcast, 275 would-be observers gathered on 28 March, joined by radio and television teams. After six long hours of waiting in cold drizzle, the bird finally showed up and warmed the hearts of the crowd. The largest crowd ever to watch a bird in the Netherlands was, reportedly, on 17-18 January 1971, when ‘several 10 000s of people’ gathered to see an escaped Indian White-backed Vulture Gyps bengalensis at Dongen, Noord-Brabant, which mainly sat on the roof of a farmhouse for three weeks before it was captured (Bogaers 1971). Annual Report 1998.
