Good Dutch crane news


This video is about cranes in the Dutch Fochteloërveen nature reserve.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Things go well for cranes in the Netherlands. In particular, in the Fochteloërveen. Nature management in this reserve on the border of Friesland and Drenthe increasingly brings silent and wet spots there and the cranes take advantage of that. In the area, there are currently between 22 and 25 cranes. Before the autumn migration begins, therefore now is the opportunity to see the Fochteloërveen cranes is at its best.

The cranes nest since 2001 in the Fochteloërveen. Thus, they made t​​heir comeback as breeding birds in the Netherlands, after centuries of absence. A great success for conservationists in the Netherlands. …

In the Dwingelderveldas the crow flies about 25 kilometers away – a pair of cranes this year brought up two youngsters, of which eventually one fledged. In the Engbertsdijksvenen there was a couple again this year, but their breeding success is still nil. [Warden] Herman Feenstra estimates that the total number of cranes in the Netherlands is now about forty individuals.
