Anyone visiting Brussels may be interested in a series of English-language pocket guides to nature walks on the outskirts. Called "Nature Walks Near Brussels" they include directions and map, natural history notes, colour photographs (some by Bird Forum members) and places to eat and drink.

Just for information, although this thread IS very old, thanks to research carried out on birdforum, we've just had a pleasant trip to both of the nature reserves at Zwin and Niewpoort. For new 'birders' on cold spring days, it was exciting enough for us to see the dozen or so Stork's nests at Zwin and at Niewpoort, there were Avocets, Lapwings, Common Stonechats, Red Knots, Northern Wheatears, Shelducks, Oystercatchers and Plovers as well as Geese, Cormorants and Terns which after a few more outings we may be better qualified to name!
