The last trip by ORCA Wildlife Officers to Fano the Northern most Frisian Island took place at the end of November 2009. We traveled with local guide Kim to the South Island and discovered a beautiful sand dune landscape.
The seal colony was huge and may explain why few seals were now left at the Northern haul out. The miles of sand are mainly deserted by the tourists in the Autumn and can therefore provide a bigger winter haul out site.
The survey route continues on the Dana and the Miricle of Migration tours will be happening there again this season
With colleague Dylan Walker I run a few select wildlife tours for other companies – with Dylan and myself you’ll be in the company of two enthusiasts with over 25 year’s experience of operating top-class holidays!

Discover the wildlife and beautiful landscapes of the Danish island of Fanø on this superb fully guided break, with 3 nights onboard the modern ferry Dana Sirena and a day and a half in Denmark. We have seen amazing wildlife sights on this idyllic little island, and there is no better way to discover how migration works than by watching it unfold in front of your very eyes. Last year we saw 50,000 birds of nearly 100 species in a single day – incredible! It’s the perfect trip for novice and keen wildlife enthusiasts, as the sheer visual spectacle is one of nature’s finest.
