Birdwatching tour Friesland

Friesland is a province in the north of the Netherlands. It is a very good birding destination.  The route is flexibel (personal request, time of year etc. ) During the winter you Great Bittern is more easy to find and off course in the spring for example the Bluethroat is present.  

'The Northern coast of Friesland is goof for breeding and migrating large numbers of waders. In the area of Fochteloërveen is the only Common Crane breeding couple present.  Every winter you will find here Northern Shrikes.

The 'Brandenmeer'  is a wetland area with birds like Black Tern, Grat Bittern and Purple Heron. The coast of the IJsselmeer holds many duck and goose species. If you are looking for Goose: this is your birding tour, in Friesland you will find many species during the winter months.
