IJmuiden

The beach and dunes next to the pier are among the most exciting birding hotspots near my home. Several rarities have turned up here in the past. It is only a matter of time before the next good bird will arrive.

I list all birds observed from within about 500 m of the dunes next to the pier or from the pier itself.

Since the summer of 2023 I have observed 180 bird species, including five introduced ones, in over 250 hours of birding.
