Description

This is a flat and typical Dutch polder. An open area with beautiful vast meadows, winding ditches, old farms, dikes, polders and lots of meadow birds. During spring and early summer meadow birds like Black-tailed GodwitCommon RedshankNorthern Lapwing and Eurasian Curlew can be found here and are very visible. It's best to explore the area by bike because many roads are closed for cars.
