Photographer's Note

One of the things we wanted to do more this year, is go walking in Belgium's nature reserves. Not too bad a resolution, we figured. Last weekend we visited Blankaart in the deep far west of Flanders. Four seasons in a day & a most wonderful walk. Here are some pictures.

BLANKAART is a wetland area located in Woumen near Diksmuide in West-Flanders. Around a vast pond is a large wetland which is home to rare birds.

The area is protected by Natuurpunt, Belgium's prime nature conservation organisation, who always do a good job. The visitor centre is located in a castle on the edge of the domain.
