BirdLife in the Netherlands reports today that a legacy has enabled them to make new breeding spots for shorebirds, jointly with Natuurmonumenten conservation organisation, between Zierikzee and Burgh-Haamstede on Schouwen-Duiveland island in Zeeland province. They will make islets where the birds will be able to nest safely.
Over 10% of the rare, threatened Kentish plovers in the Netherlands nest on Schouwen-Duiveland.
BirdLife writes about one of three Schouwen-Duiveland areas where work will start in 2014:
In Prommelsluis now, there are 18 species of breeding birds including large numbers of gulls, geese and spoonbills and Red List species such as black-tailed godwit, redshank, skylark and meadow pipit. The construction of an island with seashells in the northern part the area will hopefully tempt the Kentish plover, avocet, ringed plover and various terns to breed.
BirdLife has plans to make Schouwen-Duiveland a better place for partridges as well.
