On Tuesday morning around 9.30 a report comes in of a real Little Swift flying above the Vroon near Westkapelle. A few days ago there was also a Little Swift near Antwerp that stayed around for 2 days. With this in mind, there was no doubt and the ride to Westkapelle started immediately.

On April 20, a Ross' Gull was discovered in the jetty of Scheveningen that still counts for our April monthly list. If the bird would be reported again the next day, we wanted to try it. The day went a little different than we had expected.

Our daily twitches and short visits are tracked in this blog. Of course the reports are provided with as many photos and possible sound recordings as possible. Enjoy reading!

Waders at Westhoek

A White-rumped Sandpiper was reported at Westhoek. A good place to view waders up close in large numbers with rising water. Sometimes also nice species such as the White-rumped- and Broad-billed Sandpiper are often seen here. A few years ago a Western Sandpiper was even discovered that we also visited at the time.
