The Boulevard Birders are Bernd de Bruijn, Jip Louwe Kooijmans, Kees de Pater and Ruud van Beusekom. All team members work for Vogelbescherming Nederland (BirdLife Netherlands), which is located at Boulevard 12 in Zeist. The office is situated in an expensive neighborhood, but whoever thinks we are spoiled, do not be mistaken! We combine a well thought out strategy with a sound knowledge of Texel and have more than 150 years of birdwatching experience between us. And of course, the house martin is our favorite species. We will go to extreme lengths to win the Texel Big Day and to raise a lot of money for this Red Listed species. Our tough training schedules are coming to an end: We are ready!
