Guillemots, waders of Terschelling Island


Dead guillemot, Terschelling, 22 September 2019

After 21 September 2019 on Terschelling island came 22 September. We went to the North Sea coast north of Oosterend village. Where we saw two dead guillemots on the beach.

Two sanderlings flying past.

A turnstone.

Then, east of Oosterend, about 50 golden plovers in a meadow.
