Description

Nature reserve Beleven was agricultural land only 10 years ago. After nature restoration, 2 ponds appeared that had been slammed 100 years ago. Now the ponds  are surrounded by flowery grassland. Birds soon discovered the new habitat. Both waterfowl (Black-necked GrebeNorthern Shoveler) and meadow birds (Northern LapwingEurasian Curlew) can be seen here. A viewing cabin has been built to enjoy these birds in peace. In the surroundings the Yellowhammer sings his melancholic song. You can make a nice walk through a diverse landscape of water, meadow and forest.

Access

The Beleven is located just outside the village of Reusel. For parking see the P on the map (click on it to go there directly). The circular walk around the Beleven pond is about 2.5 km and passes a bird hide. If you only walk from the parking to the bird hide it is about 700 meter one way. See the map for details.
