Autumn at the Zwin

During the autumn break, it’s worth spending a day at the Zwin Nature Park!
Each day, you can learn many things about nature at various places in the park.

Nesting-boxes and feeding stations

At the feeding hut, you can watch the birds close up and learn how you can attract them to your garden.
Which foods appeal to which birds? Where should you put a nesting box?
