Wildlife Watch on Wadden Sea Coastline in Netherlands

One of the more spectacular sights in Holland that’s a ‘must see’ is the Wadden  Sea coastline, a place where nature seems to carry on working on its own, mostly undisturbed. 

Wadden Sea coastline is a wetland area on the North Sea coast shared by The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. It’s the characteristic channels and mud flats that make this region so exceptional, along with its highly dynamic landscape, continuously being reshaped by dramatic storms and the sweeping tide. 

Around 8,000 seals in total are found in the Dutch Wadden Sea. It is also considered one of the most important areas for migratory birds in the world, and 6.1 million birds can often be present here at the same time.
