A Forest of Witches and a Dying Forest

In the middle of the Spit, there is a witch forest. On a circular route, you can see witches, trolls, and devils from the Baltic-Nordic fairytale world.

Animal protection or forest conservation? On the Spit, there is a huge cormorant colony. 25 years ago, there were 14 cormorant nests, in 2003 there were more than 2500. The feces of the birds are strongly acidic so that the trees are slowly dying under the nests. A ghostly scene of a destroyed forest arises. In recent years, some of the nests have been emptied to control the stock and protect the forest.

  1. Fortunately, the Neotropical Cormorants that live near us seem to nest near the waters of estuaries so their wastes are not so evident and, thus, not doing in our very special tropical deciduous hardwood forests.
