Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research


Throughout the year, the Wadden Sea is populated by birds. Seabirds only come on land to breed on the Wadden Islands. There are also shorebirds that stayover in the Wadden Sea while traveling between the tropics and the Artic. They use the mudflats to fuel their long-distance flights. Both species are monitored.
