A nice place for many waders, ducks and even rare migrants and all coastal birds.

The water is a great place for waders. For example Little StintBlack-tailed GodwitCommon Ringed PloverWood SandpiperSpotted Redshank breeding Avocet, and much more. Songbirds like BluethroatSedge WarblerMeadow PipitNorthern WheatearWestern Yellow Wagtail and Bearded Tit are seen there regularly. During migration you also can find many other birds and even rarities. Regularly (different seasons) there can be seen bird like MerlinWhite-tailed Eagle, different terns like Arctic Tern, up to 209 SpoonbillHen HarrierNorthern LapwingCommon PochardCommon GoldeneyePeregrine FalconLittle Grebe and much, much more!



There are two ways. A good one (walking, biking) from Neuharlingersiel in Northwest or one from Harlesiel in the northeast. Both take about 2 km until you reach a little platform with a scope. The biggest advantage there ist that you can look over the Wadden Sea for more birds roosting in the saltmarshes. The second way is for the car directly to the lake from the south (you see it at a map). Bring your own scopes!
