Description

For bird watchers, this part of the Ardennes around Wanne - Logbierme is one of the best places to see typical Ardennes birds. Birds that are very rare in the Netherlands and Flanders are found here. The Nutcracker is truly a specialty of the area. This species is only found in the High Ardennes, in the vast spruce forests around Wanne and the Hoge Venen. Especially the forests east of the hamlet of Logbiermé are a good place to see this bird. Also for the very rare Boreal Owl, Wanne is one of the best places in Belgium. It occurs in the same vast spruce forests as the Nutcracker and hunts small rodents and large insects on the clearing plains at dusk. The best chance to hear this owl is in the spring period from March to May. Other birds you can see in the area are Red Kite, Red-backed Shrike, Common Crane, Common Raven, Bullfinch, European Honey-buzzard, Brambling, Willow Tit, Yellowhammer, Woodcock, Black Woodpecker and Middle Spotted Woodpecker.
