Photowalk at BirdLife Naturzentrum Klingnauer Stausee​

⁠Let’s go out and photograph kingfishers​!

We will meet at 7:45am, at the BirdLife Naturzentrum Klingnauer Stausee​ ( .
Located in 5314 Böttstein, next to the river Aare, close to the German border at Koblenz / Waldshut​.

In this event, we will have exclusive use of the hide at the BirdLife centre for 1hr before normal opening hours to photograph kingfishers​.

Bear in mind that the birds are wild, not captive, but the purpose-built pond is designed to attract them and provide suitable nesting locations, so we hope to see them!​

After the opening hours, you can see some exhibitions or explore other nature attractions nearby (the admission to the BirdLife Centre is included in the price). There is also a cafe where we can rest and have a drink.

You should bring along:

  • Your camera with minimum 300mm (full format equivalent) lens
