Adsbøl Dam is a nice short walk and grazed forests are rare. A hidden gem. The students of the agricultural school call it 'Paradise'. There are some quite old oaks and lots of deadwood. It is grazed with cattle and goats from Gråsten Agricultural School. Among the birds you can encounter are Cuckoo, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Eurasian Nuthatch, Common Redstart, Tawny Owl, Spotted Flycatcher, Icterine Warbler, Garden Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, Bullfinch and European Goldfinch.



There is access from Fiskbækvej north of the railway and from Gråsten Agricultural School. Make sure you park out of the way as the agricultural school might need to get past with a tractor. Click on the P in the map to get directions.
