Big area of 120-hectare made up of several fish ponds, patches of forest, wet meadows and marshy areas.
Teiche in der Heubachniederung is an area of 120-hectare of fish ponds located in the formerly largely swampy lowland of the river Heubach west of the village of Dülmen. There are numerous ponds, up to 30 hectares in size, mostly hidden behind high hedges or wooded areas. Only a small part is still used for carp farming today. Most of the pond areas are now used for nature conservation purposes. The diversity of large bodies of water, clear streams and ditches, wet meadows, heaths, moors and damp forests in a relatively small area attracts numerous birds. Among the birds that can be spotted are Bluethroat, Red Kite, Osprey, European Honey-buzzard, Common Sandpiper, Great Bittern, Marsh Harrier, Black Tern and Common Kingfisher.
Access to the ponds is restricted and it can be hard to get good views. At the Oedlerteich there is an observation point that allows a view of the bird life.
