A map with locations in Zeeland,
SW Netherlands. Westkapelle is one of the best spots to see (and
certainly photograph and read ring codes of) LBBG in the
Netherlands from mid-September well into November. Local birders
have set up their own site; for information on recent sightings,
pictures, last news on migration, etc. See the Zeeland
website (also in English).
From September to March, it is
also a guaranteed spot for cachinnans and Herring Gulls from both
far northern Scandinavia and the Baltic region.
Image below: common scene at
Brouwersdam, where Herring Gulls roost and fourage at the tidal
zone along the bitumen and basalt dike. Situation more or less
similar to Westkapelle.
