This excursion takes us into the water meadows where we will listen to the songs of the birds heralding the spring. They are mainly species that spend the winter with us or are with us for the whole year. There are also the first migratory birds there and since the trees still have few leaves, the chances are good that one or the other songsters can be observed. For most birds, spring is the beginning of the breeding season, which is accompanied by very intensive birdsong. Some voices are heard better at the beginning of April, as several bird species are not yet there until then.

The excursion is conducted in German and French

At the end you will have a breakfast. The duration of the excursion is calculated including the breakfast.

Registration required. The number of participants is limited.
