Bird friendly agriculture plan

The Reijerscamp area is 180 hectares and owned by Natuurmonumenten conservation organization. The area consisted in part of agricultural lands which are now being transformed into nature. For some residual fields there is a bird friendly cultivation plan. This should especially provide food for birds during the winter. On one half of the fields organic cereals are grown. Last summer these were organic oats and barley. …

The fields are a true attraction for granivorous birds including Red List species. Eg, on September 30, 2012 there were 250 linnets, a dozen yellowhammers and about forty skylarks. The number of yellowhammers then increased further to approximately 250 individuals on 13 January this year. That is a very large number for this part of our country. The yellowhammers forage for fallen grains and wasted seeds.

This is a Dutch video on the Reijerscamp area.

  1. It’s a beautiful bird for sure, the Dutch Yellowhammer. 🙂 Idk, but it reminds me our of Bluejay for some reason. Maybe because of its striking yellow color and our Bluejay has a striking blue color.
    The Reijerscamp looks beautiful and serene. Wish the video wasn’t in Dutch though. Would love to hear more about it but that is ok. It is nice to see that they have a protected area over there for animals like we have protected areas over there too.
