NSG Wester-Spätinge is a beautiful little nature reserve. Especially during high tide in the Wadden Sea birds seek these refuges and shelter here for resting. But also otherwise you can spot rare birds in the reeds or at the little islands and mudbanks. Comfortably spotting from the dike.



NSG Wester-Spätinge is close to bus station Simonsberg Deich but also easily accessible by bike just following the dike road from Husum to Westerhever. Also near the bus station you can park your car and have a little walk to the birdingplace.
