The Netherlands

The Netherlands is one of the lowest countries in Europe. It’s a great place for watching seabirds. Definitely, during the winter and migration times, it’s a hotspot for geese, ducks, waders, and many more. The ‘Oostvaardersplassen’ is also a well-known place. It’s a fenced area with a lot of herbivores, including red deer, horses… You can actually go on a safari in a safari bus.
