Passage migrants

The Weidmoos provides an ideal resting place for a whole range of wading birds on the long journey between their breeding and overwintering grounds.

Wood sandpiper

The wood sandpiper is a bird which breeds in the marshes of northern Europe (particularly in Scandinavia and Scotland). They appear regularly in the Weidmoos on the way from their overwintering grounds to their breeding areas.


Ruffs, too, are seen in the Weidmoos only as passage migrants. They often stop to rest in the Weidmoos as they make their way to their breeding grounds in northern Europe.
