The dune landscape on Texel is a unique habitat for wildlife. Notable areas include De Slufter, where the tide comes in and meets the dunes, forming a marshy environment rich in both fauna and flora. Texel is known for its wildlife, particularly in winter, when birds of prey and geese take up residence. About one third of Texel is a protected nature reserve. - in: wikipedia

Lotty sent me this card back in 2013, signed by the postcrossers at a Postcrossing Meeting in Alkmaar.
This card represents perfectly the dutch Wadden Sea.
