Staring at birds

Large numbers of birds and bird species find food, rest and a place to breed in and around the Eastern Scheldt.

 

When the tide is low in the Eastern Scheldt, many birds scatter their meals together on the dried silts and plates. There are many bottom-dwellers that are eaten by long-legged waders such as oystercatcher and redshanks. If the water is high, it is good to rest on the salt marshes, but especially behind the dikes in the fields and watery lands: the birds tell you if it is low or high tide!

There are many places to watch birds in the Eastern Scheldt. To be able to see them quietly in the field without disturbing them, there are viewing screens, cabins, towers, etc.

 

They are all shown on the discovery map beneath the bird observation points icon. A clear overview is created by first turning the icons off. Then click on the vogelobservatiepunt (bird observationspoints) icon.
