From September 1st the bison trail reopened to public again. The herd is frequently seen from the yellow-marked trail. The European bison is part of the European Big Five. It's a unique opportunity to see the animals. The trail is closed during the bird breeding season.
Research shows that passerine birds favour hair from the European bison’s winter coat for making their nests. These are the first results from a larger study on the breeding success of song birds in the dunes being carried out in collaboration with the Van Lennep bird ringing station.
