Description

The 53 hectare Scheerweiher wetland was created as a fish pond by damming the Onolzbach and the Hohenmühlbach. Its water was used to operate the Scheermühle (mill) until 1930. The pond developed into a beautiful nature reserve. The very shallow pond is surrounded by reed beds and wet meadows. More than sixty species of birds breed in the area, including Common SnipeWater Rail and Sedge Warbler. Notable guests are Northern LapwingRed Kite and Osprey.
