Welcome to BirdingTexel.com

I started this site in April 2013. In this way I want to share photos and recent records on Texel with others. In addition to birdwatching and photographing on this beautiful Wadden island I have visited many foreign destinations. Also from these trips I have made a wide selection of photographs. Hopefully encourages a visit to this site you to arrange a trip to Texel, undoubtedly the best place in the Netherlands for birdwatching. I can help you in many ways to create a successful visit to Texel. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy!
