Description

The Kohlplattenschlag nature reserve covers an area of 49 hectare. After the completion of the gravel mining, the area was completely restructured in 1994 into a refuge for numerous animal and plant species. The Kohlplattenschlag offers a breeding, feeding and resting place for water birds, waders and migratory birds. Among the breeding birds are Red-backed Shrike, Common Kingfisher, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Little Ringed Plover, Sand Martin and Marsh Harrier. It is possible to observe the birds without disturbance in the three observation places.
