Spot birds at Vogelplas Starrevaart

Vogelplas Starrevaart is located southwest of the Vlietland recreation area. This is a particularly attractive area for the many birds that visit the lake looking for food, and a place to nest and rest. So, the ideal spot for birdwatchers! Hikers can follow the nature route and visit the bird hide. There you can really see all the activity on the lake. And from the observation tower on the Kniplaan you’ll have an amazing view of the entire area.

During the designing of the layout of the area, the needs of the birds were considered wherever possible. The birds therefore have access to deep and shallow water, ‘dry’ and ‘wet’ reed beds and mudflats. Every species of bird can find a place to eat or nest. And that creates some lovely scenarios for bird lovers! Vogelplas Starrevaart offers enjoyment all year round to real outdoor people.
