Nature reserve Wellensteijn

The coniferous forest of nature reserve Wellensteijn is mainly home to Scots pines, as well as Norway spruce, Douglas fir and Japanese larch. Over the years, the forest has become a breeding ground for small songbirds such as goldfinches, black tits and tufted tits. Hawks and buzzards use the forest as a base for hunting flights in the surrounding landscape. The paths in the forest are freely accessible to walkers (and leashed dogs). A bridleway also runs through the area.
