The species to look out for in October: common starling.

A good month to watch birds migrate!

October is a good month to watch birds migrate! Under the right weather conditions, you can watch the migration of large numbers of passing birds, such as common starlings and redwings. Many migratory birds also use the Zwin as a place to temporarily stop over. Arctic geese, such as the greater white-fronted goose, join the wintering waterfowl.
