While this green space is not a birding hotspot per se, a short visit can be rewarded with exciting observations nevertheless.
The city park is a recreational site for thousands of people living in the region. It's reached easily and home to an astonishing variety of birds that one might not be expecting in such an urban environment, such as Owls, Northern Goshawk, Common Kingfisher or Woodpeckers.
Parking your car is possible almost anywhere around the Stadtpark but beware that parking spots may be scarce during weekends with good weather. Reaching the area is also easy by bus or rail (e.g. U Borgweg, S Alte Wöhr, etc.). For further info visit www.hvv.de
Northern Goshawk breeds in the western part with the nests readily visible from the trail system, Tawny Owl , Long-eared Owl and (in the past?) Eagle Owl hold territories in the area. However, I feel uncomfortable to publicize any more info here.
The lake in the east can be good for surprises especially during migration with different Grebes, Geese or even Terns showing up. It becomes far less interesting during summer when hordes of sunbathers gather here.
In the forested parts Eurasian Green Woodpecker and Middle Spotted Woodpecker hold territories though they range widely and are very hard to predict.
