A lurid find near Scheveningen: more than a hundred eggs with dead chicks were found on the beach there this afternoon. It is not yet clear how the animals ended up there. It is also unknown what kind of bird it is. “We have really never experienced anything like this,” says an employee of Dierenambulance The Hague.
Some eggs were half broken, others were still whole. Employees of the animal ambulance have collected the eggs and brought them to De Wulp bird sanctuary, where efforts are being made to trace their origin. There is nothing to say about that yet; they have only just been brought to the shelter, says an employee.
The eggs have not all been counted yet, but it is probably between one hundred and one hundred and fifty eggs.

Customs has also been notified of the find. One of the options being investigated is that the eggs were dumped from a boat sailing off the coast and washed up on the beach.
According to the animal ambulance, the chicks were initially viable. “So they could have just been hatched, at first sight there were no abnormalities.”
