Forested area which is now managed in a more natural way. Some good forestbirds occur with for example 4-5 woodpecker species possible late winter early spring. In winter Hawfinch, Firecrest are present, sometimes also Eurasian Bullfinch
Best places to start (and where you can park your car) are Veldstraat or Ed. Schelfhoutstraat. You can explore the area only on foot. Pay attention to avoid the area in weekends or holidays because it can be realy crowded then!
