A nice place to watch birds in Regte Heide nature reserve. It's a little house with wooden windows that you can open and close. It has a wide perspective and looks over an open field. It's surrounded on the other side by forests in which a lot of birds live as well. It tends to be peaceful and quiet as well.
Birds you can see here are:
Eurasian Kestrel, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Nuthatch, Carrion Crow, Greylag Goose, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Coal Tit, Black Woodpecker, Red Crossbill, Short-toed Treecreeper, Peregrine Falcon, Hen Harrier, Eurasian Hobby, Marsh Harrier, Eurasian Nightjar, European Honey-buzzard, Northern Goshawk, European Stonechat, Great Grey Shrike
By public transport you take bus 45 from Tilburg to Turnhout. Get off at the Goirle - Nieuwkerksedijk stop. The Regte Heide is located southwest of Goirle. From the bowl of Riel follow the signs "Regte Heide". The easiest way to reach the heath is through the entrance on the Rielse Dijk. Another option is via the Tweede Dijk, accessible from the Goirle industrial estate.
It's best to explore the area by bike or just by walking, since you can't go there with the car. You can park the car nearby and then walk to it. It's rather easy to find.
You can also park at the carpark that is marked on the map and walk from there (2 km)
