Bird paradise

The Lauwersmeer is a real wilderness with rough grasslands where geese spend the winter, reed beds with nesting places for bitterns and bearded tits and mudflats which are home to the waders. All of these birds can be observed from close by from bird hides near the Jaap Deensgat and Sylkajút in the south of the Ezumakeeg, for example. Every first Sunday of the month at around 1.30 p.m., the ranger gives a talk about the birds in Activiteitencentrum de Bosschuur in Lauwersoog and explains exactly what you can see in the area at that moment. Or book a photo boat trip which will take you past the areas with most birds.
