The Vrombautsput is a lake that can be reached via a footpath that leads to a viewing wall. It is mainly diving ducks such as the Tufted Duck that stay on the lake for a long time. However, less common birds such as Black Tern, Northern Pintail, Red-crested Pochard, Goosander and Snipe are sometimes seen.


Nederlands: De Vrombautsput is grote waterplas gelegen tussen landbouwakkers. Het is een overwinteringsplaats en broedplaats voor talrijke watervogels. De plas is te bereiken via een wandelpad dat uitkomt bij een kijkwand. Het zijn vooral duikeenden zoals de Tufted Duck die lang op de plas verblijven. Maar er worden soms ook minder algemene vogels gezien als Black Tern, Northern Pintail, Red-crested Pochard, Goosander en Snipe.



The only entrance is via the Vrombautstraat just next to house number 102. You can park in the Kriekmoerstraat and then walk to the start of the footpath to get to the pond. You can leave your bike at the beginning of the hiking trail.


Nederlands: De enige ingang is via de Vrombautstraat net naast huisnummer 102. Parkeren kan in de Kriekmoerstraat om daarna te voet te gaan naar het begin van het wandelpad om tot aan de waterplas te geraken. De fiets kan je achterlaten aan het begin van het wandelpad.
