Location: Valgenweg near Delfzijl, in the province of Groningen, the Netherlands.

 

Description: The Wadden Sea is a unique wetland area, stretching along the entire North Sea coast from Den Helder in The Netherlands up to as far as Esbjerg in Denmark. It is the largest estuarine area in Europe.

 

Edit: Thanks to my long time Flickr friend Paul for his constructive criticism regarding the gull's flying position. It bothered him a little that the gull was heading out of frame instead flying into it. Frankly, I'm with him this time, as it bothered me a little as well from the moment I posted the image. So, I went looking in my archives and found a gull flying in just about the right direction. Thanks Paul for mentioning this, I couldn't agree with you more.
