Nuldernauw is a so-called 'randmeer', a lake on the spot where the inland sea of Zuiderzee used to be before the area was reclaimed. It is now an elongated lake with wet meadows on the banks and stretches of reed. It is an open landscape so from the dikes you have a good view over the area. Inland you see many ducks, geese and waders like Black-tailed Godwit, Common Redshank, Common Teal and Garganey. In the reeds and bushes on the lake side you can see many types of warblers and other little birds like Bluethroat, Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting, Eurasian Tree Sparrow and Linnet. And there is always chance to see White-tailed Eagle or Peregrine Falcon.
Coming from the highway A28 you take exit 9 (Nijkerk) and follow the secondary road N301 in the direction of Zeewolde and Almere. After 1.5 kilometers you take the first exit on the roundabout. There you can park your car on the side of the road. Best birding is along the lake, but you can make a circular walk of about 7 km (shown on the map).
