Het Vinne

Limbourg  >  Belgium

The Vinne is a nice place for birding. It is a beautiful wetland with reed beds, open water and observation hides.

Added by Gilles Pirard

Description

The Vinne is a large natural lake with a rich bird population. In the spring, the atmosphere here is determined by the hustle and bustle of a large colony of Black-headed Gull. Trails winding gently over the water lead you over the Vinne lake and you pass various birdwatching hides. Among the interesting birds you can see here are Great Bittern, Water Rail, Common Teal, Cetti's Warbler, Northern Shoveler, Penduline Tit and Black-crowned Night-Heron.
