A nice variety of birds very near to the city. A visit in spring is always nice, with a real dawn chorus of garden and park visitors but also Common Nightingale, Bluethroat and a good change to see or hear Eurasian Bullfinch, Willow Tit, Icterine Warbler, Savi's Warbler, Common Kingfisher, Cetti's Warbler. And always the possibility to see raptors like Peregrine Falcon, Eurasian Kestrel, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Goshawk, Sparrowhawk. Also more common water birds, Common Pochard and Red-crested Pochard are always a nice find. Common Swift and House Martin and Barn Swallow in the air and the occassional Spoonbill and Great Egret flying over you. During migration times birders go to hilly parts of the park to count endless streams of geese, finches and what not. In the park in spring time you can see Ring Ouzel and Northern Wheatear. Not bad for a park in the city?!



Very easy to walk - a walk in the park so to speak! But beware of speedy cyclists. You can reach the Diemerpark best by bike. It is a 5-10 minute walk from a tram stop on IJburg (tram 26 going up and down to Central Station). Going there by car is more difficult because all the inhabitants have more than one car, so parking can be a bit of challange. And in Amsterdam you always pay for your parking spot. Please come by bike.
