On the islands in Lake Grevelingen the numbers of some orchid species have been monitored closely for years. The census shows that 2013 is an absolute record year for the fen orchid. Never before people have counted so many of these plants here. To our knowledge this is the largest population of the Netherlands and perhaps even of Europe.
