The Stonechats should already be settled in their breeding area, and depending on the weather, some "mountain" species such as Wheatear or Whinchats "northern" species such as Willow Warblers or Yellow Wagtails rest near Leukerfeld on their migrations north. Sometimes rare Heron species are sighted near the water as well. These birds are occasionaly seen in large numbers, especially after a period of bad weather a so-called "migration jam", where meadows or fields are densely covered with waiting birds.

At the end of the excursion you will have a Coffee and Croissant. The duration of the excursion is calculated to include time for breakfast.

The excursion is conducted in German and French
