The Ohlsdorfer Friedhof just north is also a great place, where Eurasian Eagle Owl, Eurasian Hobby, Northern Goshawk, Common Kingfisherand many more breed, though they're hard to find and information is held back. Understandably, as dozens of photographers here often go to great lengths, without considering the well-being of these birds.
