Watching birds of prey at the Balgzand region of the Wadden Sea

A kestrel rushes by, a peregrine falcon alights on one of the highest posts and a buzzard circles in search of its next prey. The birds of prey at the Balgzand region of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site are a source of plenty of action in the area. Hop on a bike and accompany a guide to discover which birds of prey reside in the most bird-rich spot in North Holland.

Together with a group of fellow bird lovers, you and your guide depart from the Kuitje and head to the salt marsh where all kinds of bird species rest or hunt for food. This trip covers about 5 kilometres. Along the way, you’ll stop at an outlook point right at the top of the dike with a truly impressive view of the vast Wadden Sea! In addition to the birds of prey, the guide will also point out the other birds that live in the region. 

No binoculars? No problem! A telescope is available.
