opmerkingen died on 28 August, skin retained in collection of Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden ZH, photographed, videoed (Dutch Birding 42: 373, plate 499, 2020). Six is a record year, surpassing last year’s five (though possibly the Weerribben bird was the same as last year). Recently, this species seems to be on the increase. After a good number of records in the 1950-60s, this species became rarer in the 1970s to 2000s. Over the past 10 years however, there have been 28 records. All four years with four records or more are from the past decade and there was only one year without one (2017). In contrast, in 2000-10 half of all years lacked a record. The Natura 2000 area of the Weerribben and its surroundings seems to be developing into a key site for the species. This year’s confiding 1cy bird at Budel was popular among birders and photographers. It appeared to be in a bad condition and eventually died.
