Dannemeer is new wetland with large ponds and islands. Ideal for birds such as Black Tern and Whiskered Tern, Eurasian Spoonbill, Black-winged Stilt, Avocet, Little Ringed Plover, Common Greenshank and Wood Sandpiper. But you can also see reed birds such as Savi's Warbler, Sedge Warbler and Bluethroat. Last year even a Glossy Ibis was seen! In all seasons there are many birds. In the breeding season a big colony of Black-headed Gull, in autumn Eurasian Spoonbill, ducks and waders, in winter geese.
Dannemeer is also a good place to see Black-necked Grebe.
From the village Schildwolde at the end of the Dannemeerweg is a small parking. Best way to explore the area is by walking or by bike.
