Birds in the Oostvaardersplassen lakes - Lelystad

Join a Staatsbosbeheer guide and spot the birds on and around the Oostvaardersplassen lakes in Nieuw Land National Park. Resting, foraging or nesting, many bird species feel at home in these wide-open marshlands.
Nationaal Park Nieuw Land - Vogels van de Oostvaardersplassen

Walking through an area you are not allowed to access without a guide and learning to recognize birds by listening and watching – this is an excursion for aspiring bird lovers although experienced birdwatchers will also have a wonderful time on this two-hour hike. If you feel hungry after the tour, you can conclude your guided walk with a delicious lunch at the restaurant run by Buitencentrum Oostvaardersplassen.

And hey… it’s best to refrain from wearing perfume and wear wind- and water-resistant clothing in muted colors so you’ll be less noticeable to the wildlife. And don’t forget to wear sturdy shoes and bring your binoculars!
