Old Putten is not only a paradise for campers, but also for the colourful flora and fauna. Have you ever 'spotted' a kingfisher, or heard of a ral? In the evening owls and many different types of bats fly around. You could even find a litter of hares under bushes. The country estate is home to many stinse plants, especially to be admired in spring.
