at the edge of the village.....

you find a new nature reserve, first the area exist of fields with maize and asparagus.
Directorate-General for public works and water management bought the land to use the sand for building motorways.
Because the sand was dig out, water area's appear. After that the municipality did a nice job by turning this area into a nice park where birds have all their needs.
I love to walk there.
