Joining the ranks of bird conservation on the 15th of June in a year of drought, food for wildlife is on the decrease but guests visiting Farm Voigtland are on the increase, the young and energetic couple Stephan and Gaby Voigts is recognized for their contribution to birdlife conservation with a two penguin rated Bird & Birder Friendly Award.
To boost the birdlife in their garden on Farm Voigtland, together with bird conservation and tourism (BirdsConTour), a Wild Bird Support Station was set up. With this station the birds get compensated for the interference of human activity and the thereof lost space. Simultaneously the guests now have the opportunity to experience the interesting and colorful birds in direct neighborhood, ideal also for photographing.
