With about 4 hectares of water and reed this area is the biggest water biotope in Bad Vöslau. Combined with the forest area and neighboured fields, several animal and plant species can be encountered here. By the western pond you can find Common Kingfisher (especially in winter!) and Reed Bunting. Usually Eurasian Moorhen rest near the water's edges or on the trail, although they are very shy. Water Rail has been spotted here as well. Take a look at the trees across the water because Grey Heron and Great Egret like to rest there. In the eastern area you can find different species like Long-tailed Tit, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Syrian Woodpecker and so on. Benches to rest can be found around the ponds or by the fishing hut. Heading to the fields and vineyards in the north you are likely to see Sparrowhawk, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Kestrel, Common Pheasant deers and rabbits.
