The IBA comprises a polder landscape with wet meadows and ditches. It is located to the north of the city of Amsterdam and adjoins Ilperveld, Varkensland and Twiske (071). This site, together with sites 068, 070 and 071, formed part of a single, larger site (former site NL038) in the previous pan-European IBA inventory (Grimmett and Jones 1989).
