Nature reserve 'Romboutswerve'

This pasture reserve, where hunting is forbidden, is managed by "De Wielewaal v.z.w.". It is visited by migratory and hibernating white-fronted geese, pink-footed geese, wigeons and ruffs. Among the many species of birds which brood here, there is the lapwing, the black-tailed godwit, the shoveler and the oyster catcher. Especially the transition area between pastureland and ditches abounds in botanical species: rushes, bul rushes, sedges, strawberry clover, tubular water-dropwort and mars-marigold. In and around the ditches and pools reed and flowering rush are found. In autumn the ferny azolla colours the water surface of the pools red.
