    Zwillbrocker Venn is a nature reserve on the Dutch-German border. The forest and swamp area was created after peat was cut here. Many birds perch here, including a colony of about forty flamingos (!). This makes it the northernmost breeding ground in Europe for this tropical pink appearance.

    Shallow lake where in the spring months (March to July) the world's northernmost flamingo colony resides. We were there in mid-July 2019 and the flamingos already gone. A pity, but I'll be back!

    There are nowhere else to see flamingos anywhere. Even though the population that lives here are animals that were originally bred from zoos. Unfortunately nobody told me before that the animals are already in their winter quarters in July. So only a dry fallen moor was admired. The peace was still nice and so the stop was still worth something.

    From July 20th to 23rd, 2018 we stayed near the biological station. Counted 7 flamingo cubs. 5 of them can be seen on the 2nd picture of me.
    Everyone hopes that the water will be enough to feed them until they are able to fly.

    In order to deepen from the newly created Moorsee the later Flammingoinsel was artificially created. The effort has paid off through the settlement of bird diversity.

    Be sure to stop and read why there are flamingos in the Zwillbrocker Venn! Very interesting!

    The Zwillbrocker Venn is a beautiful area for hiking or cycling.

    Two dry summers were enough to drive away the flamingos and other animals that have been breeding there for 40 years, perhaps forever. Anyone who still denies climate change should stop by here and think about it. It's nice here anyway, but the situation is serious.
