The Nienwohlder Moor is a nature reserve in Schleswig-Holstein. The 398 hectare nature reserve lies northeast of Hamburg between the villages of Nienwohld, Nahe,Itzstedt and Sülfeld. It protects a drained and mostly gated high bog area, which is the largest and best preserved bog remnant in Schleswig-Holstein. It is now an open bog with numerous water-filled peat engravings surrounded by a bog forest in the area of former industrial use. The nature reserve is also an important habitat for birds. There are various waders such as Eurasian Curlew and Common Snipe as well as ducks like Northern Shoveler, Common Teal, Garganey and Tufted Duck. Also many Tree Pipit, Meadow Pipit and European Stonechat. European Marsh Harrier and Great Grey Shrike can be found too. The moorland area is good for Common Crane which are now breeding here again. In the wooded moorland areas you can find various woodpecker species and Red-backed Shrike and many songbirds.
