1. The sea dike of Westkapelle
Every year in autumn large mixed groups of large white-headed gulls rest on the sea dike at Westkapelle, which is in the south-west of the Netherlands. It's certainly one of the best place in the Netherlands to study and photographing large gulls. The appeal of the sea dike is that you can generally get very close to the group of gulls by driving up to them in your car.

2. The beach of Westkapelle
During late 2008 the size of the beach between Westkapelle and Domburg was increased. Whilst the work was ongoing, many gulls foraged around the supply tube and the ship. Especially on the beach on the Westkapelse side, if it's quiet with tourists, it is a good place to watch gulls! The last very good sighting at this place was a colour-ringed Baltic Gull from Finland which stayed here for some minutes on 1 September 2009.
