Other

The afore-mentioned keystone species aside, in acidophilous oak woods, moors and heaths you also find a huge number of other rare and noteworthy species.

The oak woods are populated by five different species of woodpeckers alone, Dryocopus martius and Dendrocopos medius among them. Rare oscine birds like Anthus trivialis and Ficedula hypoleuca here have a strong presence. It is an impressive experience to observe red deer, fallow deer, European mouflon and wild boars in the Diersfordter Wald deer enclosures.

On the heath moors, you find a huge number of bog mosses, rare, red-coloured species of the raised bogs like Sphagnum magellanicum among them. There is a real diversity of dragonflies. Typical are several Leucorrhinia species. Aside we find, for example, Ceriagrion tenellum and Coenagrion lunulatum. In Molinia caerulea, Omocestus rufipes shows it red-yellow belly.

In the dry grasslands and heaths, in spring and summer you can hear Gryllus campestris singing. The fine, sparse vegetation of Carex arenaria, Corynephorus canescens and Agrostis vinealis lets you see the open sandy soil at places. Calluna vulgaris and Spergula morisonii show their inconspicuous, small flowers. Small holes in the sand indicate the presence of wild bees, sand and sphecid wasps.
