Biking and birding on Texel and a visit to Ecomare

Posted on July 4th 2008 by Arthur in Birds, Life in Holland, Nature

Last Wednesday we went to Texel for the second time (last time was in April last year). We took the train from Leiden to Den Helder and then the 9:30 Teso ferry to Het Horntje on Texel. It was a beautiful day for bicycling around Texel: 30oC and sunny.
