The nature reserve at the end of the lake

The nature reserve is one of the last remaining non-urbanized shoreline linear areas. It is a refuge area for many birds. Some, such as the scaup, find favourable conditions to get through the bad season. Others settle year-round and breed in the reed beds in spring. This is the case with the crested grebe.

The terrestrial part is home to breeding passerines such as the frightened redhead.

On the mammalian side, the most remarkable species is the European beaver, reintroduced on the Dead Water in 1972. Several families are now well settled on the reserve.

Finally, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies and dragonflies contribute to the diversity of this preserved area.
Like the fauna, the flora is just as diverse. Wet meadows are home to rare species such as orchids: military orchids, marsh epipactis.

For the delight of the general public, the development of an educational trail, accessible to a public with reduced mobility and low vision, allows visitors to discover this nature. This makes it an ideal walk for the whole family.
