New and Unique!
We have renatured a former salt puddle - the Pimetzlacke - on St. Martins' grounds with much passion and energy. The puddle had disappeared in the 1980s and has now been brought back to "life".
An observation hide has been sunk into the ground in the center of this shallow body of water: the St. Martins Photo-Hide (unique in all of Austria).
The sides are mirrored and are therefore invisible to birdlife. Sitting upright, you'll be able to view many diverse species at eye level...
A fantastic experience! Recommended equipment: Lenses with focal length 400mm, tripod, dark clothes. You can visit the Photo Hides all year round. You can take the best photos during the the breeding season, from late March to late May.
Advance registration possible!
Our St. Martins rangers conduct bird ringing approximately every 20 days as part of an international research project. Songbirds are predominantly caught for this endeavor. They are gently captured, fitted with a numbered foot ring, measured and released.
Ringing is one of the most important instruments in bird research. The project we conduct is dedicated to researching changes in our songbird populations.
