Brent geese on the Hallig islands

Every spring, up to 50,000 Brent geese stop to rest on the North Frisian Hallig islands and the surrounding Wadden Sea before making the 5,000km flight to their breeding grounds on the Arctic coast of northern Siberia.

This amazing natural spectacle is the focus for the 15th Brent Goose Festival, which is taking place this year from 21 to 29 April. You can watch the migrating birds while taking part in numerous events offering fun for all the family.
