Flamingo bird watching
Flamingo bird watching in the Zwilbroekerveen
Northernmost nesting grounds of the flamingo
Zwillbrock - In the Zwilbroekerveen you can see every year flamingos. The lake, right across the Dutch-German border, is the northernmost nesting place of the bird.
On the German side of the border you will find an information center about the flamingos and there are some great spots around the lake to view the birds in their natural habitat.
I come here almost every year to spot flamingos at the Zwillbrocker Venn. You can see them well from the side, but as a reader indicated, don't forget to bring binoculars or telephoto lens!
