The bird watching hide at the south basin of Hauke Haien Koog offers a wonderful view of the water and the directly adjacent wet meadows.

Description

The Hauke-Haie-Koog is an important resting and moulting area for many bird species in the Wadden Sea. Every year in spring and autumn when migrating, thousands of geese come to the Hauke-Haien-Koog to rest and moult. Large flocks of Dunlin also use this area as a high water resting place. Avocet, terns, and various songbird species such as Reed BuntingBearded Tit and Sedge Warbler use the Koog with its wide reed areas as a breeding area. Marsh HarrierGreylag GooseGreat Bittern and various types of ducks also settle here to raise their young. After the breeding season from June to September, large groups of Spoonbill can be observed. Among them are young and adult birds.
