Bird watching

The Lake Pape Area is an internationally significant breeding, migrating and wintering site for many birds, and is included in the list of Important Bird Areas in Europe.

The narrow strip of land, less than 1 km wide, between Lake Pape and the coast is a major "bottleneck" for migratory birds as well as thousands of bats!
