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