Schiermonnikoog (August 20 - 23)

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (and all play and no work made Jack a mere toy..?), so I was off to Schiermonnikoog, a small island located in the Dutch Waddensea, for an educational as well as recreational bird ringing experience at the "Groene Glop", our bed & breakfast & ringing station (with Joop vA (and family) and Jorien vS).

At times it was crowded at the coffee table. Captures can be found on

View towards the east, with Rottumerplaat on the horizon (where I once spent a summer looking towards the west...).
