The Polder Bramel is a perfect habitat for waders, waterfowl and meadow birds. It is an important resting area and wintering area for migratory birds. Bird species that can be seen here include White-tailed Eagle, Osprey, Bluethroat, Spoonbill and Common Kingfisher. The groups of resting geese, swans and ducks during the cold winter months are quite considerable. With a bit of perseverance and a bit of luck, rare species such as Caspian Tern, Whiskered Tern, White-winged Tern and Black-winged Stilt can be spotted. Rare birds have also been documented here. These include Wilson's Phalarope, Baird's Sandpiper and Black-crowned Night-Heron.

If you walk up the short path from the parking lot, the bird watching is great from the observation hill with a wooden wall. There is also a bird observation tower (see the map) from where you can overlook the polder.
