Den Uitlegger

Brasschaat, Antwerpen  >  Belgium

Forest combined with grasslands and a large waterhole. A small area, but certainly nice to visit.

Den Uitlegger is a small forest area with a lot of potential. It is an ideal spot for spotting Eurasian Nuthatch and Woodpeckers close by. The birds are well used to visitors and not shy. Best is the summer period early in the morning. Then you will see more bird species and have a chance of fewer people if you go during the week.


Nederlands: Den Uitlegger is een klein bosgebied met veel potentieel. Bos gecombineerd met grasvelden en een grote waterpoel. Ideale plek om dichtbij Eurasian Nuthatch en spechten te spotten. Zij zijn de bezoekers al goed gewend. Een aanrader is de zomerperiode 's morgensvroeg. Dan zal je meer soorten zien en kans op minder volk als je in de week gaat.



The best way to reach the area is via Sionkloosterlaan in Brasschaat or via Heidestraat-Zuid in Kapellen. You can park at both locations.
