NSG Lüsekamp is a nature reservoir right on the Dutch-German border. It is home to many birds of the open mixed landscape and most famous for Red-backed Shrike, but also plenty of other birds, for example Yellowhammer, Greater Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Reed Warbler, Northern Lapwing and others. Best time to go is late spring / early summer, but you will be able to find birds all year around. Some migrating ducks in migration season and Great Grey Shrike and Hen Harrier during winter, although these are a bit more scarce and you need some luck to see. The route indicated on the map is only from the car park to the observation point near the reed and water areas. You can venture further than that as seen on the roads in the map.



A car park is right behind behind the border station. You can reach it by getting off A52 in Elmpt and following the motorway in parallel to the Dutch border or you can cross into Netherlands and get off right behind the border and circle back through the border crossing station.
