Description

The area is easily accessible with a walking path around the two lakes. It is unique to have such an area so close to the city. Common reedbirds like Sedge WarblerReed Bunting and Reed Warbler breed in the reedbeds. Other birds that can be heard or seen are Black-tailed GodwitCommon ShelduckAvocet, Eurasian Spoonbill and Bluethroat. Numerous geese and duck species can be seen.

The unpaved trails lead right past puddles full of waders and geese. The Northern Lapwing stunt around you to divert attention from their nests.
