Long Description:
I vådområdet Vorup Enge findes flere fugletårne. Herfra kan man blandt andet se blishøne, rørhøg, svaner, dobbeltbekkasin, vibe, fiskehejrer og krikænder. Det vestligste af de tre fugletårne i området er tilgængeligt også for kørestolsbrugere. Den korteste vej til tårnet er fra motorvejs rasteplads Gudenå Øst. Herfra fører en bred grussti hen til fugletårnet som er forbundet til stien med en rampe. Det er ikke muligt at komme op på første sal i tårnet med kørestol, men der er god plads og udsyn på "stue-etagen"

In the wetland of Vorup Meadows there are several bird watching towers. From here you can watch: coots, marsh harrier, swans, common goldeneye, lapwings, grey heron and eurasian teal. The most Western of the birdwayching towers is accessible for wheelchair users. the shortest route is from highway picnic area Gudenå Øst. From here a wide gravel trail is leading to the tower which is connected to the trail with a ramp. It's not possible to enter the first floor of the tower by wheechair, but there is plenty of space and a good view from the ground floor.
