Friday 28 September 2012.
On a jetty in Lauwersoog harbour just outside the lock, scores of noisy turnstones. Black-headed and herring gulls as well.
When we are just a few hundred meter away from the island, another four eider ducks flying. Six brent geese fly over the harbour.
On the harbour jetty, again turnstones. And redshanks.
A flock of curlews lands on a mudflat.
We see the south-west coast of Schiermonnikoog island, looking red from the autumn colour of many glasswort plants.
