Wadden Pontoon De Richel


The Wadden Pontoon De Richel is used mainly for bird research. In spring the pontoon is hauled to De Richel, a sandbank in the Wadden Sea south of Terschelling, where it remains until late autumn. The pontoon is extremely well suited for bird watching and accommodates up to four researchers.
