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.
A parking is available at the site entrance. As soon as you leave the main roads near the reception center, there are fewer visitors. Click on the P in the map to get directions. The walk around the lake is about 4 km long.
