The Wetstein Pfister had come to the Netherlands from the former East Indies against will and thanks. He had realized his hydraulic engineering study on a tea plantation yesterday. But one of his daughters suffered from asthma and that is why the family left the former colony. After the purchase of the first plots of land at Zeist, the family quickly bought around 150 hectares. The Heidestein estate was created, named after a capital villa on the Arnhemse Bovenweg. The house is no longer there, destroyed by a fire in 1939, but the Heidestein estate was spared. All water features on the estate were excavated by hand at the beginning of this century on behalf of Wetstein Pfister. The Austrian once made a fortune as an irrigation expert at a tea plantation in the Dutch East Indies. He later applied his experience to perfection on his own estate. The engineer aimed to reconcile the useful (water supply) with the pleasant. Ever here, punters on the "irrigation canals" sailed here to let guests enjoy the landscape. Along the way, bridges and tunnels provided the necessary atmosphere. Finally they moored at the chalet-like tea house, which was built above its ice cellar and water reservoir. In 1974 the area was purchased by Stichting Het Utrechts Landschap, which set out its own walk in the area. This walk has been plotted by the ANWB, in collaboration with Bird Protection Netherlands. The Ravenspoor tour runs for the most part through Heidestein, but also passes through two adjacent estates, Bornia and De Breul. The NS-station Driebergen-Zeist starts and ends. The name of the walk promises a lot, but only a lucky birdwatcher will see ravens on Heidestein. Ravens were once extinct in the Netherlands. According to Vogelbescherming, around twenty pairs are breeding on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. There was also a couple on Heidestein until a few years ago, but it is uncertain whether this largest songbird in the Netherlands is still there today. The walker has a slightly greater chance of seeing ravens on Leersumse Veld, located to the east. At the start you walk through park Beerschoten. This site serves as a bird breeding area in the spring. There are more than 60 nest boxes. In the case of songbirds, the golden rule applies that the male, who sings the loudest and shows off his feathers the most, is given the best habitat. Then you walk through the Bornia Estate. The owner, Het Utrechts Landschap, leaves dead or decayed wood as much as possible. This is where insects come from. The size of the territory of birds depends on the food present in that area. You could say: the more insects, the more songbirds can live in that area. Then you walk through the Woeste grond. From the spring to the summer, the wasp thief scoops the wide plain, looking for well-filled wasp nests. To be able to grab its prey, it is equipped with unique tools. The wasp thief has no gripping, like other birds of prey have, but digging claws. With this he can scoop the nests out of the ground in a jiffy. His slit-shaped nostrils prevent him from hitting sand during digging and the stiff scaly-shaped springs on his head protect him from wasp stings.
