Nature Hot Spot:
Eching Reservoir (Echinger Stausee)
Eching Reservoir (German: Echinger Stausee) is a hot spot for birding in Bavaria, and part of the European nature reserve network Natura 2000.
It is located nearby the Isar, and together with the floodplain forest and the Moosburg reservoir forms the nature reserve "Vogelfreistätte Mittlere Isarstauseen".
Many endangered species are breeding here, and in winter, waterfowl are visiting the place in thousands, while migrating from North- and Easteurope.
