Visserskruis

Zeebrugge  >  Belgium

Cross as a reminder of the more than 150 accidental fishermen on the east coast. One of the few green places with trees in the port of Zeebrugge.

Description

Visserskruis (Fisherman's cross) is a good place to spot birds passing through the coastline, with the chance of finding a rarity. Always worth it when you are in the area. Not the nicest place for walking, unless you like ports. Good place for spotting Firecrest, Yellow-browed Warbler, European Pied Flycatcher, Spotted Flycatcher and Wryneck. On a rare occasion you can even find a Red-breasted Flycatcher.
