I really enjoyed being in Texel. The birding was great. The company was great. And there were tons of opportunity to take lots of photos.

A Crested Tern colony saw lots of action with birds coming in and out, little fish hanging from their bills. At that stage, none of the eggs in the colony seemed to have hatched. These tern photos were taken at 9:30pm! this is the first time I have ever managed to do anything like that. Probably also the first time I have ever seen it light at 9:30pm, let alone being able to take photos of flying birds!
