Description

During the walk in Herzogenvenn et Nesselo you can encounter Great Grey Shrike , Wryneck , Bullfinch, Red Kite , Tree Pipit , Red-backed Shrike , Willow Warbler , Willow Tit. It was a quite unknown track for most Belgian birders until a couple of Black-winged Kite showed some nesting behaviour in august 2020 (mating, picking up branches). They did not settle in the area, but it's definitely worth the walk if you are in the neighborhood.
