Description

The Innerer Spreewald nature reserve has many wet meadows and shallow water areas. With a bit of luck, Common Crane can be observed during the breeding season and when rearing the young (from March to June) as well as in autumn when resting. The observation tower is located directly on the Buchenhain nature trail, which leads through one of the most species-rich mixed forest areas in Brandenburg. The forest is a habitat for Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Red-breasted Flycatcher and Golden Oriole. Various waders and waterfowl live in the wet meadows and shallow water areas. Black Stork, White Stork and White-tailed Eagle are observed regularly as well as many geese, ducks and meadow birds.
