Photographer's Note

My last upload from the island of Tiengemeten shows the present inhabitants of the island. Since Tiengemeten was taken over by the Nature Protection Association of The Netherlands and the inhabitants were rehoused on the mainland in 2007, Scottish Highland cattle now roam the island especially the northern part which is called the wilderness. Since they were first introduced their numbers have increased vastly and many have had to be taken to other areas in the Netherlands and Belgium to keep the natural balance in check.
In answer to John's last question: Tourist/visitors are allowed on the island between sunrise to sunset, a small ferry boat ferries a maximum number per day from the mainland. There is a bed and breakfast on the island, as well as a small nature camping for 25 places, both run by the Nature Protection Ass. These people as well as the 17 inhabitants left and the only people allowed to stay the night everyone else has to be on the last boat back.
