Wind directions

The maps on this page show where rare bird discoveries were made in the Netherlands since 1 January 2023. Only those (sub)species, that are currently considered by the CDNA, are included. Besides accepted records, also some reports still to be evaluated by the CDNA, are shown. When records have more than one location, only the first is being used.

The maps below show the records grouped by the wind direction on the day of discovery
