Birdwatching at „Rohrdommelfläche“ in Nettetal
The „Rohrdommelfläche“ (in english: area for the eurasian bittern) is a 2009 artificially created habitat for reed dwellers. A walk on the narrow embankment between the river Nette and the flooded areas leads you directly to open water areas and reed beds, which provide food, breeding ground and hiding place for a variety of birds. There is also an observation hut from where you can watch and photograph the birds. I’ve seen quite a lot of birds there, but never an eurasian bitter 😀.
Cormorants like to sit on a dead tree and let their feathers dry in the sun
There are also many grey herons that hunt fish and roam the reeds and undergrowth.
A large number of geese and ducks also live on the waters and adjacent meadows.
sometimes two birds get in each other’s way.
Also some rail birds can be seen here.
The great crested grebes are always fascinating….
Of course not only birds live here but also other species.
