My review of the wonderful birdwatching tour to Texel, 14 February, 2022

The weather was perfect. The Texel / Waddenzee tour with Emile was just great. Emile is a fantastic guide and host. He picked me up with his car at Amsterdam Railway Station.
We drove up to Den Helder where we took the ferry to the island of Texel. There, Emile showed me the best places for bird watching, using his telescope. We could observe all the geese that stay in the North of Holland during wintertime.
We saw lots of: White-fronted, Tundra Bean, Greylag, Canada, Barnacle, Brent and Egyptian Goose: it was just sensational!
We saw around 30 different species, including rarities like Guillemots and the Black Guillemot in winter plumage.
Thank you once more for this interesting day.
