Bird exhibition De Stern
Discover De Stern bird exhibition
This autumn, you can visit Henri Willig's organic Jersey Stable to see the bird exhibition De Stern free of charge. See the IJsselmeer region through the eyes of five tern species and get a unique view of the special IJsselmeer nature above and below water. And discover how special this nature area is. This interactive exhibition was developed by the Bird Conservancy and will be on display on the 2nd floor of the organic Jersey farm from 8 October 2022 to 5 March 2023.
Together with the Markermeer and the Randmeren, the IJsselmeer forms the IJsselmeer region. The largest freshwater lake in north-west Europe that also lies on the East Atlantic bird migration route. An important place for hundreds of thousands of birds, including many tern species, to rest, forage and breed.
The exhibition tells about the nature above and below water of the IJsselmeer. There are mini-podcasts by birder Arjan Dwarshuis and special three-dimensional drawings of the five star tern species: common tern, little tern, black tern, giant tern and laughing tern. An interactive IJsselmeer game is fun for young and old as is a dry dive underwater. In addition to the exhibition, visitors to Henri Willig's exhibition can get started themselves with a bird map and borrowed binoculars, which will help them learn to recognise the birds on and around Henri Willig's Jersey stable.
