Connecting wetland centres across the world

Uitkerkse Polder bird sightings


Spoonbills, Uitkerkse, cr: Marc Nollet

Uitkerkse polder is an important stopover for migratory birds, in Belgium but near the border with the Netherlands.  It is owned and managed by Natuurpunt, a core partner for the MBP project.  This year, keen amateur bird watchers recorded spoonbills and black tailed godwits at the site, providing valuable information for how birds are migrating across Europe.  For a fuller article click uitkerkse bird sightings, and our congratulations to the birders and all their work to record this annual phenomenon!
