A complex of ponds in ponds in Luitemaa Nature Protection Area. Two bird observation platforms give good view on the coastal meadows and the sea.
Near the Pikla ponds in Luitemaa Nature Protection Area, there are two birdwatching towers – one is between the ponds and the second one, which is not as high, is located on the beach. The towers are perfect for birdwatching because they provide a great view of the coastal meadow and the sea. The low and indented coast is a favourable place for feeding and stopping for a lot of waterbirds. The birds you can see here include Whooper Swan, Eurasian Wigeon, Common Goldeneye, Wood Sandpiper, Common Redshank, White-tailed Eagle, Marsh Harrier, Bearded Tit, Great Reed Warbler, Northern Wheatear and others.
The Pikla ponds are located south of the village of Võiste. Click on the P in the map for directions or coordinates. You can combine a visit with exploring the Võiste Coastal meadows (also described on Birdingplaces), see separate entry.
