Unique tidal area Jan 05, 2013
Since medieval times people did try to tame the wild Slufter at the island of Texel, which was actually part of the straite between the older islands of Texel and Eijerland - now formed into one island.

What is left is a salt marsh area where the tides of the sea still play their prominent role.

A large body of water enters the Slufter, farther from the see-entrance this will turn into smaller creeks, where the area is criss-crossed by footpaths so people can explore the marsh.

Lots of birds can be seen here, the vegetation is salt loving plants. I was here in Winter, but still want to go another time in high-Summer when the "lamsoor" is in bloom, which colour the marsh with an intense purple.
