It is a huge area with the lake Radbodsee in the middle of everything. You can see birds like Common Kingfisher, Mute Swan, Gadwall, Great Crested Grebe and Tufted Duck. 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.
