|One of the best parts of birdwatching is birdmigration.
Watching the sun rise, hear and see the birds fly over. The only things you need is a chair to sit on, binoculars and coffee.
The purpose of this activity: It's nice to do;
Since the early eighties, I have been conting on different locations in
the Netherlands depending of the place I live. In the autumn of 1994, when
I moved to Meppel, I start counting on a location in "De Wieden"
and in 1999 I started to put the countings day by day, on the internet. Daily countingsresults were put on this site.
The observationpost in Zutphen
I only counted birds which are visible with the naked eye, so I'm not tracing the horizon with my binoculars.
Undetermined birds are not counted. Only heard birds are counted as one.
