The Natte Graslanden bird watch screen - Lepelaarplassen
The Natte Graslanden (wet grasslands), part of the Lepelaarplassen reserve, is a paradise for numerous meadow birds in spring, as well as an ideal setting for the great white egrets that feed here all year round.
The Natte Graslanden route can be followed in both directions. From the De Trekvogel visitor centre at Oostvaardersdijk, head for Trekvogelpad. You will pass the Trekvogel grasslands and a bridge with a small lock. At the next bridge turn right into Lepelaarpad, following Galjoottocht. Stay on this meandering path for a few kilometres and you will automatically come upon the bird hides. You will eventually reach the Oostvaardersdijk dyke. The entire route is approximately eight kilometres.
