Anywhere in the Deutsch-Belgischer Naturpark in the Eiffel region South of Aachen and Cologne, especially the Ruhrsee just East of Heimbach is worth a visit. For example, in October it holds both Kites, 3 Buzzard species, Osprey and Storks all moving through and feeding/loafing about. The woods in and above the upper Ruhr valley south of Monschau are also very productive too.
