In breeding season in Korendijkse Slikken & Leenheerengorzenpolder there is only a limited access just near the parking place and along the Westdijk. From the Westdijk you have good overview over the meadows with it's birds, like Black-tailed Godwit, Common Redshank, Northern Lapwing, Skylark, Eurasian Oystercatcher, Meadow Pipitand Little Ringed Plover. During autumn migration and in winter the walking track gives a good variety of birds, ducks, gulls and terns, waders, raptors and songbirds. With some luck migrators as Osprey, Caspian Tern, Red Kite, Pallid Harrier, Black Stork can bee seen, better chances will be for Spoonbill, Little Egret, White-tailed Eagle, Great Grey Shrike, Spotted Redshank, Common Greenshank, Curlew Sandpiper and may other waders.
Difficult to reach by public transport, close to village Goudswaard (ca. 2 km). No issue by bicycle or car and parking place available. There is a short signposted walk (ca 1 km) year round, with good views on a pond, creeks and meadows. The longer signposted walk (c. 5 km) can be done from 15 July - 15 March and will give some extra bird species of reedbeds and river. The walks start from the parkingplace (See the P on the map).
