Romo Nature Park
In the Vesterhavet, the eastern part of the Waddensee, lie a series of islands from the northernmost, Fano, south to the German island of Sylt.
One of the central islands in the chain is Romo, a large and still-growing sandbank, linked to the mainland by a causeway. The western side of the island has a wide open sandy beach and the east has coastal meadows, often flooded, with extensive reedbeds, Lakolk Lake and small areas of pine plantation.
 Notable Species
Breeding birds include Red-necked Grebe and Great Bittern, harriers and Short-eared Owl, Pied Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit and Ruff, small numbers of Kentish Plover also breed and sometimes Gull-billed Tern.
During migration periods the mudflats attract large numbers of waterfowl including scoter, Northern Pintail and Northern Shoveler, and waders such as Spotted Redshank, Whimbrel and Bar-tailed Godwit. Pied Avocet can occur in flocks of several thousand in autumn.
