Komoot has now ruined my painstakingly written tour description twice, now that's enough ...But I would like to mention a few things:
☹️ I don't have to cycle across the Fehmarnsund Bridge again, because the fun factor is completely missing because of the extremely narrow bike-footpath, construction site and a lot of traffic.
😀 The island is great for cycling. Along the coast there is a great view in all directions over the dike and many small streets with little car traffic invite you to relaxed cruising.
🔝 Our completely unplanned top highlight of the tour was the Jimi Hendrix memorial stone.
Exactly 51 years ago, from September 4-6, 1970, the Love and Peace Festival took place here, at the time it was supposed to be the German answer to Woodstock. Jimi Hendrix was booked as a top act for 70,000 DM and made the audience wait a day before his performance because the weather didn't really suit him (too windy and then it was raining too)
Other groups canceled completely ... it must have been quite a flop for the organizers.
And now, on the 51st anniversary, quite a few people met right here (for the revival?) And looked a bit out of date ...

After the last big rain shower of the afternoon we started. The start was the parking lot northwest of Nieby. We hiked counter-clockwise, first over meadow paths, further past the Reetdorf (holiday home area) and over the polder dike to the Baltic Sea. There on the well-developed gravel road towards Birknack, a few cyclists came towards us. Overall, there were only a few people on the road, we were pretty much the only ones in our direction ... and we were able to enjoy the great landscape extensively. Far away a couple of Robust cattle grazed in the meadows, but no trace of the Koniks. Hundreds of birds rested on the Birknack sandbank, difficult to see with the naked eye. We walked on towards the slowly sinking sun and turned inland at the NABU hut to cross the large lagoon over the Meta Noorgaardts bridge. A great sight was presented to us: There, at some distance, large flocks of birds sat in dead trees protruding from the water. The wide water landscape looked almost bizarre in the evening light.
The further route over beautiful meadow paths actually led us to the Koniks. Suddenly they were there, the horses. A good 20 animals stood on a meadow in the southern area of the NSG, most of them motionless under trees. Two Koniks measured their strength, whereupon some mares with their foals went away.
Between fruit trees we hiked back to the parking lot and had to be extremely careful not to slip on one of the thousand snails that were also on our way.

The morning was pretty wet, so we decided to go for a short hike. It was nice.
We observed a large swarm of starlings, which was frightened up from time to time and shortly afterwards disappeared invisibly into the meadow.
A stork occasionally shuttled back and forth between its lookout point on a mast and the nest, and complete families of cattle and horses grazed in a pasture, a rather unusual sight.
