Birds in Tennenlohe

The forest of Tennenlohe is a nature protected reserve near Nuremberg in southern Germany. Large parts of the area are heathland with shrubs that is kept open with the help of wild horses. The place is good birding area with species like Woodlark, Tree pipit or Red-backed shrike.

  15. Wonderful shots of the variety of birds to be found there. Loved the camoflaged pipit. My eye focused on that red plant and I thought "bird, what bird?" :-) Then I saw it. Loved seeing the horses too. Interesting that they use them there.

  23. The horses are a great idea for keeping down the brush, they look very strong. It's great you could photograph closely so mamy small birds, the Yellowhammer is very cute.
