Perhaps one of the most famous nature reserves on Terschelling is the Boschplaat. This nature reserve includes a vast area located in the eastern part of the island. The Boschplaat is an important breeding ground for all kinds of bird species. The salt marsh area along the Wadden Sea is the habitat of the gull and the spoonbill. Different types of terns live on the Koffieboonplaat. Every year, during the spring and autumn, large groups of migratory birds visit the Boschplaat during the trip to their breeding or wintering area.
The Boschplaat is a unique area for bird spotters. But the nature reserve is also very suitable for a relaxing walk. Take into account the breeding season of different birds, since not all areas are then accessible to the public.
