Zandvoort Beach Wildlife

Zandvoort beach is a great place - but not just for humans!

On warm, summer days it is of course awash with people enjoying the sea, the sand and of course the delicious food and drink available from the many beach cafes.

If a busy summer day is followed by a cloudy and quiet one - and that can happen! - it's a different story, however. The 'wildlife' comes out!

Here is a picture we took at a beach cafe on one such day in July 2010. There were few people around but the sparrows were in full force, seeking out and enjoying the left over crumbs from the previous day. They are so used to humans that they wiill not readily move from their 'perch' on a cafe chair whilst you take yours on the adjacent table - they just carry on regardless!
