Picture StoryThis panorama was taken on the Wadden Sea island of Texel towards the mainland of The Netherlands, towards the town of Den Helder. This beautiful Island is just a half hour ferry ride from my home and I love to spend time on it. The island is known for its many bird watching spots along the western coast of the North Sea as on the eastern Wadden Sea coast. They are most likely produced by the navy, as it is also used as a military training area by the Royal Netherlands Marines.
