Rømø is placed in the Wadden Sea National Park. -The Wadden Sea of the birds –
About 10 millions of migratory birds are using the Wadden Sea as their larder on their long trip from Africa to the breeding areas north of the polar circle. Their only stop on the way is the Wadden Sea. Every spring and autumn the migratory birds are here and follow the rythm of the tide. At low tide they go out on the drained seabed, turn around with the tide and go back to land, while they are looking for food with their long, sensitive beaks, that also work in the dark. From the Wadden Sea they are flying non stop to either north or south, depending on the season. The Wadden Sea is considered to be one of the most important wetlands of the world. It is a fantastik experience to watch the fascinating flight of the migratory birds over the Wadden Sea and listen to their gentle song out there.
