The grasslands surrounding the Fort near Krommeniedijk feature a wealth of meadow birds. In early spring, part of the area around the fort is flooded on purpose (inundated). Wetlands such as these are appealing in particular to migrating birds, who like to make a stopover here. The wet terrain attracts various special birds. Here you can see large gatherings of European golden plovers, lapwings, black-tailed godwits, ducks and geese.
