Great bustards on the horizon

Todayâ€™s excursion brought us to Buckow where a state ornithological institution is located.
This institution is surrounded by wide wetland areas. Well, to be exact the region of the Westhavelland is the largest internal wetland all over Europe.
Thanks to the head of the environmental agency who gave us some intriguing explanations, our binoculars at the ready and an exhibition we visited we really discovered some of these rare birds and learnt quite a lot.
Apart from the great bustard there are dozens of other species such as the white-tailed eagle and the sea eagle, the common buzzard and the common kestrel or the corn bunting thatâ€™s endangered nationwide and heaps of different species of aquatic birds to listen to and watch from the high seats you can find all over the terrain.
