It is a huge area with the lake Radbodsee in the middle of everything. You can see birds like Common Kingfisher Grey Heron and Great Egret . Surrounding the Radbodsee, is a little forest where you can find birds like Eurasian Green Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Short-toed Treecreeper and maybe also a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, but you have to be lucky. To the west there is also a nice area with bushes and meadows. Sometimes rarities are found. On 23.07.2000 a Blacksmith Plover was spotted.



You can come with the car, bike or to go for a walk. You can park at the lake, click on the P in the map to get directions to the parking spot. It is a very nice area walk around, because the landscape is magnificent.
