Hemmerder Wiesen is a small nature reserve of 53 hectares with meadows and pastures along the Amecke stream. The fields left and right of the road offer many observation opportunities. Trees and bushes provide hiding spots. After rainfalls and controlled via a small weir the fields get flooded and attract waterfowl. Among the birds you can encounter in the area are Northern Lapwing, Snipe, Common Redshank, Little Ringed Plover, Red-backed Shrike, White Stork, Northern Shoveler, European Stonechat and Yellowhammer.



Easy accessible area with many observation opportunities left and right of a closed off paved road. The road is closed for traffic by a gate and leads to a dead end. A small parking area can be found in front of the gate. Click on the P in the map for directions.
