The island of Rømø is part of the Wadden Sea National Park Vadehavet - Denmarks greatest national park.
The island of Rømø is located in the Danish Wadden Sea. The area is not so rich in species as others, still a few hundred have been spotted, but it houses waders, ducks and geese and White-tailed Eagle in huge numbers, some species in the 5 digits. Once you drive across the Rømødæmning, (Rømø Dam, that connects the island to the mainland) you will be able to see thousands of birds, even without binoculars.
Bird migration tops in March/May and August/October. Both spring and autumn, hundreds of thousands of birds – primarily waders – rest on the island’s mudflats. Dunlin form the biggest flocks, but Red Knot, Eurasian Oystercatcher, Eurasian Curlew, Whimbrel, Bar-tailed Godwit, European Golden Plover, Common Redshank, Avocet and Common Greenshank also appear in large numbers. It is not unusual to see more than 20 different species of wader on a single day. Most of the breeding Kentish Plover in Denmark are spotted near Sønderstrand on Rømø. The Kentish Plover is an endangered species.
You can find small parking lots all over the island and Rømødæmningen. It is allowed to drive at the beach, at your own risk though, since it is flooded on a daily basis.
