Barghauser See

Northern Saxony  >  Germany

Protected lake with a breeding island for gulls and terns.

Added by Wiebke Schäfer

Description

The Barghauser lake is a protected area of ​​18 hectares, including 14 hectares of water. The lake is over 20 m deep. In the lake there is an artificially constructed island for breeding birds. A colony of Black-headed Gull has settled here, but Common Tern and sometimes Avocet or Mediterranean Gull also find a place to breed. Around the lake a narrow strip of trees has developed, and there are grasslands in the area. So this also attracts some other birds.

Details

Access

You can park on the southwest corner of the lake (Click on the P on the map to go there). From there you can walk along the south and east side of the lake and have some good views on the breeding island. If you want to observe the breeding birds up close it's a good idea to bring a telescope.
