The Haaksbergerveen is a birdrich bog area on the border between The Netherlands and Germany.
The Haaksbergerveen is a birdrich bog area on the border between The Netherlands and Germany. In spring, you can see many species of breeding bird here, like Cuckoo, Pied Flycatcher and Common Redstart. Typical species of open moorland, like European Stonechat and Whinchat are present too. Even the forested parts of the area are great for breeding species, like Golden Oriole. It's a very quiet area, so even Common Crane has moved here to breed.
In winter, this part is the abode of Great Grey Shrike. Other nice birds you can find here are Red-backed Shrike, Northern Wheatear, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Hen Harrier and Marsh Harrier.
