Short Birding break, Close to Amsterdam,

Depending on season and sightnings we can plan a nice birding adventure around Amsterdam, if you only have 2 or 3 hours. For example a hike in a park, a birding tour in the rural area outside Amsterdam. Just tell us your plans and wishes and we will plan a birding trip that suites your personal situation.

So if you only have 2 or 3 hours  of spare time in Amsterdam, than this tour is something for you. Destination depends of the time of year. In spring we go to areas close to Amsterdam (Kinseldam, IJdoorn, landje van Geijsel) in the other seasons to the Oostvaardersplassen.

The Kinseldam is a rocky dam and IJdoorn is a wetland that provides nesting ground and shelter to some of the following species: Little and Great Ringed Plover, Black-tailed Godwit, Common Redshank, Little Grebe,  Eurasian Spoonbill, White-fronted Goose, Barnacle Goose,  Goldeneye, Mediterranean Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull , Great Black-backed Gull, Avocet, Fieldfare and sometimes Scaup.
