The Fat birder on Holland

The Netherlands has a lot to offer to (foreign) birdwatchers and with nearly 470 bird species seen and a surprising variety of habitats, it is certainly worth a visit. With almost 800 kilometers of coast line and nearly half of the country below sea-level it is no wonder that (coastal) wetlands make up some of the best birdwatching areas, especially since the Netherlands are located on one of the main migration routes for waders. However, being on the continent Holland also profits from various range extensions of Middle-European or eastern species.
