We start out at the Wadden Sea Center with a short introduction to the birds we expect to see. Afterwards we drive in our own cars from the Wadden Sea Center to one of the locks in the Wadden Sea where we wait for the rising tide to concentrate the waders in front of us. We bring along binoculars and telescopes, which gives us the opportunity to study several species of waders that refuel in the Wadden Sea on the way to the breeding sites farther north. There is also a chance that we encounter different species of ducks, geese and birds of prey along the way.
