Birds on the sandbank

Over the years, the waves have created a small sandbank 80 metres out in the water in the lagoon along the coast.

The sandbank has gradually grown to form one or more elongated islands, where swimming and wading birds rest. Islands, islets, isthmuses and big stones in the water are preferred as the birds are generally safe from predators here. Many birds can be seen here during the spring and autumn migrations.

Swimming ducks: mallard, pintail, widgeon and teal.
Waders: redshank, dunlin, blacktailed godwit, greater curlew and avocet.
