Day to the island of Schiermonnikoog

Share

Short-toed Treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla) - Photo made at Schiermonnikoog near Klein Zwitserland This year no long weekend to the island of Vlieland that’s why a few visits to the Wadden islands were on the program. This time it was the turn of Schiermonnikoog. The predictions for the weather did not look too well but we took the risk. At 4 o’clock in the morning we left from Uden with Jan Verhoeven, Luuk Wassenberg, Koen Rovers and myself of course. We planned to get the first ferry to the island at 6:30.
