We meet at the birding platform at AM 7:00. Together we explore the view from this scenic spot that attracts about 250 different bird species and our guide will point out certain interesting birds for you and explain about them.  Our guide will also focus his monocular on some interesting birds and tell you about their yearly movements and what makes this place so attractive to them. Later on we continue into a peaceful forest nearby where we experience soft layers of mosses to walk on. As this is a different habitat it is attractive to different bird species. Of course you can stay in the area after the end of the guided tour. At weekends there are are spontaneous bird marking activities at the platform that might be interesting to watch, too.
