A short tour on the uninhabited island Rottumerplaat, one of the two Wadden islands of Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. The island is forbidden access for people, only a handful of researchers and bird counters (which also was the reason of my visit) can enter the island occasionally.
In the blog about the Dutch desert island Rottum archipelago, the wardens of Rottumerplaat island report on birds.
They have counted 33 spoonbill nests on the island. Twelve spoonbills had colour sings, indicating where they had been born. Eleven of these birds had been ringed as chicks on Schiermonnikoog island between 1999 and 2007. The twelfth one was born in 2006 in the Boschplaat nature reserve on Terschelling island.
