This is a little owl video.
The owls responded promptly [to good circumstances this year] with a high occupancy, an extremely early clutch start, large clutches, many owlets in excellent condition, high nest success and above all, by bringing in big mice and voles numbers. A clutch size of 4.22, an average clutch start of April 7, an egg success of 64%, an average of 2.73 owlets per nest started, a nest success of 80%, a condition index of 1.06, and the incredible number of 590 mice and voles in the prey stock: all parameters were well above the long-term average.

Wildlife mirrors save lives of roe deer

Last year “only” 35 deer died. “That’s about 20 percent lower than in other years,” said Jurgen Hejink, secretary of the Wildlife Management Unit (WBE) Winterswijk and surroundings.
Blue reflectors are placed by the game management units along several roads in the Achterhoek. Roe deer are scared of light rays of cars that are reflected by the blue reflectors. That keeps them from running on the roads.
