The first peewit egg of the year was found in Giesselanden in Zuid-Holland on Wednesday. The discovery of the first peewit egg traditionally signals the coming of spring and is deeply rooted in Dutch history. 

Andre Hornstra, a volunteer at Nature and Birdwatch Alblasserwaard, found the egg on a pasture in the Botersloot polder and reported it to LandschappenNL at 6:14 p.m. The egg was checked later in the evening, and it was determined to be a fresh egg.
