Valley of Birdsong
In the Ice Valley, bird lovers can learn to identify native songbirds even better by their calls. At the upper entrance to the valley, a birdsong "clock" next to the gardener's cottage shows the waking times and calls of the different species of birds throughout the day.
The calls and habitats of the most common songbirds are presented along winding paths between bushes and trees. The 250-metre-long trail features illuminated information boards activated by light barriers, which provide details of most of our native songbirds. Visitors can stop by a small pond to listen to the calls of waterfowl and hear birds that live by meadow brooks singing along the stream. Woodland birds can be heard among the trees. The rich bird life in the Ice Valley is truly special as the great variety of songbirds can unfortunately now only be experienced in just a few sanctuaries.
