Week number 74-49
Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.
In the autumn, hundreds of water birds are caught during their migration and then ringed in the duck decoy 'Bakkerswaal' along the Lek near Lekkerkerk. These are mostly wigeons and teals, who are on their way to Africa. SHOTS: ducks in a pond; scale model of a duck decoy; a decoy-man peers at the ducks through a hole in the reed screen, lures them with food and drives them into a net; close up of the ringing of a duck.
