This is a Ramsar Site, Special Protected Area and Natural Reserve. Haff Reimech lies in the far south-east of the country in the valley of the Moselle and includes gravel-pits, grassland and scrub and the best area is around Remerschen.

Other breeding species in this excellent area include Common Kingfisher, Eurasian Eagle Owl and Black Woodpecker, Grey-headed Woodpecker and Middle Spotted Woodpecker.

Common Crane occurs in thousands on passage and migrating raptors can include European Honey Buzzard, Black Kite and Red Kite and Osprey. One or two Black-throated Diver appear in winter as well as Great Bittern, Smew, Peregrine Falcon and Short-eared Owl.
