The month of September

is over. In recent weeks the variety of observed bird species has been great. On September 20, over 138 species were observed on the island. On 17 September, another Blyth's Reed Warbler was found at de Robbenjager (the fourth for this year). It was also on that day the first Yellow-browed Leaf Warbler of autumn was seen. Other highlights; an early autumn sighting of a Red Phalarope in polder Waal and Burg on 23 September and on 25 September a beautiful first winter Red-breasted Flycatcher at the Robbenjager. A potential Collared Flycatcher seen on ​​September 27 and 28 was the cause of much commotion among birdwatchers. The location was near the Vuurtorenweg at camping the Robbenjager. However, sound recordings and good pictures did not exclude Pied Flycatcher. On the last day there was a short sighting of a Hoopoe near the lake behind the Robbenjager. In addition to seek bushes, fields and wetlands it is sometimes worth a few hours sea watching. Sightings of Pomarine Skuas, Long-tailed Jaegers, Northern Fulmars, Sooty Shearwaters and on 27 September a Little Auk at post 9 were reported.
