Final impressions of sand suppletion activities at Noordwijk aan Zee (NL) – 20130623

Tomorrow the sand suppletion activities at the beach of Noordwijk aan Zee in The Netherlands are supposedly coming to an end.

I’ve had the chance to visit on 4 separate occasions and the spectacle of seeing (and hearing) thousands of gulls at a short distance never ceased to impress me.

I still have many photos and observations to work through which I will cover in upcoming posts, but let me start by showing some videos and photos of what the scene looked like this weekend.

Enjoy…

  1. Nice! I’ll bet that this is what it looked like when the gulls would find and attack a large shoal of fish out at sea (maybe when a whale drove them to the surface?). I don’t suppose that this happens much these days, the state of the seas being what they are…
