winter in Germany (1 Viewer)

I'll be travelling through germany the first week of march on my way to czech republic.

Germany has some nice places, especially the eastern side, there are many places you can spot Kites and other birds of prey. I'm not that familiar with Germany and Birding. And ofcourse there's a beautiful wildbird park in the west of Germany, with many owls and other birds of prey.
Hi pemburung,
generally the baltic sea coast is fine for diving ducks and for white tailed sea eagle in winter, also brambling, common (or grey) crane and arctic goose species in north eastern germany (Meklenburg) depend on the weather

The north see coast is good for arctic geese (barnacle, brent, pink footed) and for waders, also whooper swan

Lower Rhine area is good for Greater white fronted goose and bean goose, also for some surprise birds (had a great white egret there some weeks ago)

Black forest is good for Black woodpecker, Nutcracker, crossbill, dipper

and so on...I could go on, but it depends very much on where you are going, so if you give me some more info where you are I could perhaps give you more detailed info.
