Description

On Helgoland it's possible to see Northern Gannet at a distance of 1 meter, or see them in flight at close range. The birds are used to people. When you are a photographer you don't need more than 300mm (FF eq), you can also see Kittiwake and Common Guillemot. Take a trip to Dune, an island close by, and you can see the seals on the beach and in the sea at close range (about 20 meters, closer is forbidden)
