Birding Tour Diependal

Vogelexcursie Diependal Geelgors

Birding excursion Diependal; Diependal was built on the former rolling fields of the AVEBE potato starch factory. The trip to the birdwatching hut alone is an experience! To be able to get to the viewing room, a trip through a long narrow underground passage of over one hundred and sixty meters is necessary! This makes it possible to enter the area without disturbance (due to hibernating bats, the tunnel is closed from November to February and the bird hide cannot be visited).. From the viewing room, there is a beautiful panoramic view of the area and the adjacent surroundings.

Depending on the season and the water level, there is a wide variety of birds in Diependal to admire. Every year it is exciting again to see if the Red-necked Grebe is breeding again. The Bearded Grebe is always a feast for the eyes. In the winter it is not uncommon to come face to face with the cormorant.

In addition, many different ducks and geese can be admired throughout the year. And let’s not forget the birds of prey, in the summer the Marsh Harrier hunting for prey. The Buzzard floating on the therm in anticipation of a snack that presents itself. A Sparrowhawk in a flash through the scrubs in search of his victim.
