BirdingTexel

Welcome to BirdingTexel.com

I started this site in April 2013. So that I can share photos and recent records on Texel with others. In addition to birdwatching and photographing on this beautiful Wadden island I have visited many foreign destinations. From these trips I have put a wide selection of photographs on this site, too.Hopefully they encourage you to arrange a trip to Texel. Undoubtedly the best place in the Netherlands for birdwatching.

I hope to see you soon on Texel and .........keep on birding!

April showers bring May flowers

Yes, spring is too cold and too wet, but fortunately the birds are not deterred and are returning to their breeding areas. The spring migration on Texel is disappointing. The wind is blowing from the… Read more
