Polder de Kampen (also known as Oostermeent) is a grassland area in the municipality of Blaricum, adjacent to the Eempolder. Together with Eemland, the Kampen is one of the largest open grassland areas in the Netherlands and an important breeding area for Black-tailed Godwit and Northern Lapwing.
The bird watching hide is located on the banks of the Eemmeer. In the spring and summer you can see and hear reed birds such as the Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler and Bearded Tit. In the period from July to September, moulting Ruddy Shelduck can be seen. In the winter you will find large groups of Eurasian Wigeon, Smew, Common Goldeneye and Goosander on the Eemmeer.
