From the Zeeland-Flemish village of Hengstdijk you can take a walk around the De Vogel nature reserve. Put on your walking shoes and come enjoy the peace and natural beauty.

Old Hengstdijk
You walk through the village of Hengstdijk, which once had an open connection with the Western Scheldt. The village is located on a twelfth-century dike and was reclaimed by Flemish monks. In the village you can admire the St. Catherine's Church. It dates from 1892, but its predecessor was built just after the reclamation.

Bird Creek
The Vogelkreek is one of the oldest creeks in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Before the reclamation of Hengstdijk, it was a tidal channel where water from the Western Scheldt flowed in and out twice a day. You can spot many water birds there. Just outside Kuitaart you will see Klein Vogel on the left, which also belonged to the original tidal channel. You pass Vogelzicht, a polder mill from 1865. On the Meerdijk you walk past Huis Lettenburg, a monumental country estate that originally dates from the seventeenth century.
