Delleboersterheide - Oldeberkoop

N 52.9522123 / E 6.1563749

The Delleboersterheide covers 195 hectares and you will find a lot of animals here. You may come across foxes, badgers, Scottish highlanders, Exmoor ponies and Drenthe heath sheep. Breeding birds such as the tree sparrow, the yellowhammer and recently also the crane have found their place here. You will also find small insects here. There are brown fireflies, comma butterflies and sometimes as many as a hundred moorland blues fluttering around.

This nature reserve is above all a dragonfly paradise with no less than 43 different species of dragonflies, including the rare slender armoured dragonfly. The best place to admire the dragonflies is from the dragonfly platform at the Catspoele, a beautiful fen within walking distance of the Delleboersterheide. Take a break from your cycle route here for a beautiful walk and discover all the creatures.
