Nesting attempts in 1999 and 2001, near Amsterdam, of a female paired with a male Eurasian Wigeon represent the first breeding records in The Netherlands. Both attempts were unsuccessful. A pair in 1998 in Noord-Brabant demonstrated display, but it is doubtful whether breeding took place. At both sites, escapes might be involved.
