Français: Zone de marais au coeur de terre constiué de champs, à côté d'un centre d'enfouissment. Le paysage est agréable à regarder. De plus, quand les oiseaux sont de sorties, c'est d'autant plus intéressant, c'est un enroit très interessant pour les photopgraphes car le paysage est magnifique.



Access to the site is primarily by car. But of course it is also possible to explore the area on foot or by bike. The circular route indicated on the map is about 6 km.
