Each year in October hordes of birdwatchers come to Helgoland. Equipped with binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras, they come onto the island in small groups to discover the variety of species present in Helgoland at this time of year. Lectures are then held in the evening. In the Birdrace, "twitchers" compete to spot as many varieties as possible.
