Klärteiche Plattling

Bayern  >  Germany

Old clarification ponds from a sugar factory that attract waders, ducks and many other birds.

Added by Wolfgang Müller


The Klärteiche on the outskirts of the village of Plattling are the clarification ponds of a sugar factory which is 500 meters north. Next to the ponds that are in operation (in the southwestern part), there are also dried-out ponds that are not in use anymore. These shallow pits attract waders Ruff, Common Greenshank and Spotted Redshank during migration. But there are also deeper ponds that attract ducks and reedbirds. Among the other birds that you can see in the area are Bluethroat, Reed Warbler, Little Grebe, Common Pochard, Northern Pintail, Penduline Tit (rare), Marsh Harrier, Northern Wheatear and Whinchat.



Plattling can be reached via the A92 in the direction of Deggendorf, Plattling-Nord exit. On the state road 2124 you drive in the direction of Plattling, past a shopping center until you see the stream Plattlinger Mühlbach on the left. At a small bridge that crosses the stream, turn left from the main road, cross the bridge and park here. From here you take the left footpath along the stream in an easterly direction. The path then makes a slight right turn and you are already standing by the pond.
