Old botanical garden in Göttingen. Worth a visit also for the beautiful plant diversity. The calm setting and rich vegetation attracts lots of birds.

Description

Old botanical garden in the city of Göttingen. Especially the high plant diversity and calm setting is perfect for bird species trying to find a calm space in the city. Besides the general bird species like Blackbird or tits like Long-tailed Tit, you can also find Common Kingfisher here. In winter there have been records of the rare visitor Bohemian Waxwing. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
