Dubringer Moor

Saxony  >  Germany

One of the biggest remaining mire areas, surrounded by forests, fish ponds and meadows.

Added by Thiemo Karwinkel

Description

The Dubringer Moor is a big mire and nature conservation area. The path through the area includes mires, fish ponds and various forest types. The highligth is the observation tower, from where you can watch "singing" Common Snipe, White-tailed Eagle, breeding European Stonechat, breeding Red-backed Shrike and breeding and resting Common Crane.

The fishponds are still in use and interesting for e.g. Common Kingfisher & Whooper Swan. For harvesting fish they were regularly drained and provide habitat for inland-waders like Green Sandpiper and Little Ringed Plover. The ponds are also hunting habitat for White-tailed Eagle, Osprey and Black Kite.

Access

You are not allowed to go by car inside the area, but walking and going by bike is fine. Do NOT trust all the tracks, that were painted on online-maps, some end in the mire or are forbidden, due to nature conservation! Follow the drawn routes here on this map! Many tracks/paths are dead-end! You can easily get disoriented / lost in the south-western and western forest part of the drawn track, but with a GPS / Mobile Phone you can navigate easily! Due to high water levels, tracks can be flooded or be very muddy!
