Fuldaaue

Fancy a nature photo getaway? Why not plan a trip to the Fuldaaue Nature Reserve in Germany? A good way to enjoy the sun in another country while photographing the wonders of nature!

 

The Fuldaaue nature reserve

The Fuldaaue is a recreation area located in the center of Germany, near the town of Cassel and about 200km south of Hanover. The park was created in 1970 for the National Garden Fair held in 1981. Today, the Fuldaaue is a paradise for birds that come there to live and rest. Spring is the best time to walk in the Fuldaaue and you can even take a detour to the famous Wilhelmshöhe park in Cassel, which is a World Heritage Site for its monumental hill and water games.

The northern part of the park consists of a lake and an islet with silty flat areas, sandy beaches, conifers and reeds. Elsewhere in the park, old deciduous trees and conifers attract birds that nest in old trunks. All around are flooded fields and meadows, on which various migratory birds rest. A circuit of 4 kilometers connects the whole. Ornithologists should not miss this little hike! Moreover, the highlights of the park offer a magnificent view of the surrounding area.

 

The species of the Fuldaaue nature reserve

At the end of summer and autumn, different species of birds are found on the banks of the Fulda river including fighters, snipe and bark knights. The meadows are also captivating places at this time of year because migratory birds come and go unceasingly. Different species of ducks such as the whistling duck or the teals are then the masters of the place.

In winter, the park is quieter since the south side is no longer used by bathers and fishermen.

All in all, the observations remain more amusing in the spring. Beginning in February, thrushes, woodpeckers, sitels and creepers begin to arrive. If the ensemble of this great orchestra is not enough, the owls end the day with their songs. Coots, grebes, mute swans and other gray geese build their nests at this time. As for swallows and swifts, it is fantastic to see them fly over the water to drink.
