Nederland - Schoorl, Vogelmeer

Nederland - Schoorl, Vogelmeer
The Vogelmeer (Bird Lake) is located in the middle of the open area of the Schoorlse Duinen. This wet dune valley was dug in the 1970s. There are always birds to be seen on and around the water. The lake owes its name from the many seagulls that used to breed here, but foxes have driven the birds away to a large extent. Black Aberdeen Angus cattle roam freely in the area around the lake and use the water to drink.

If there is sufficient frost, the Vogelmeer is one of the most beautiful skating spots in the Schoorl area. To reach the 'ice rink' one has to walk about half an hour. During our visit in the winter - February 2021 - there was plenty of skating on the lake in an almost fairytale-like setting.

I loved these images and the story that went with them. I've never been to a natural skating rink before, I can only imagine how fabulous it would be. And I love that this place is an important place for animals too. Thank you for sharing!
