Nature reserve the Zouweboezem - Ameide
The Zouweboezem nature reserve is still a relatively undiscovered gem and is what makes it a beautiful and peaceful piece of nature. This area has been excavated to collect the excess water from the polders. In these wetlands, reed beds were created, which the thatcher gratefully used to provide farms with thatched roofs.
The Zouweboezem is a fantastic place for bird watchers because the wetland is home to many bird species. Think of the black tern, porcelain grouse, cetti's singer, mustache and marsh harrier. The largest breeding colony of the purple heron in the Netherlands lives between the reed stems in the swamp.
The Zouweboezem with the nearby duck cage De Zouwe, The Hoenderwiel and the polder Achthoven belong together. From the various viewpoints you have a beautiful view over the grass landscape, water and the reed areas, which together create a varied nature reserve. Walk across the deck through the reed and wetlands and you have a good chance of seeing the birds that live there up close.
