Arnhem, Gelderland  >  Netherlands

If you would like to see forestbirds this is definitely a good spot in this region. The old trees in this area make this the perfect spot for woodpeckers.

With al the old beeches in this part of the forest this is definitely the best place to find Middle Spotted Woodpecker andBlack Woodpecker. The Beekhuizensebeek is also home to Grey Wagtail and sometimes Common Kingfisher is around in the area. The pine forest on the edges will definitely be good for Crested Tit, Firecrest and Coal Tit. During the walk keep your eyes and ears open for Northern Goshawk, Bullfinch, Hawfinch, Marsh Tit and so on!


Nederlands: Met veel oude beuken in dit deel van het bos is dit de beste plek om Middle Spotted Woodpecker en Black Woodpecker te vinden. De Beekhuizensebeek is ook de thuisbasis van de Grey Wagtail en soms is er een Common Kingfisher in de buurt. Het dennenbos aan de randen zal zeker goed zijn voor Crested Tit, Firecrest en Coal Tit. Houd tijdens de wandeling je ogen en oren open voor Northern Goshawk, Bullfinch, Hawfinch, Marsh Tit enzovoort!
