This 12 June 2015 Dutch regional TV video is about a new nature reserve, Kardinge; meadowland just east of Groningen City.
Hartog [of Natuurmonumenten] will, together with farmer Hendrik Jan Elzinga, make the area better, particularly for grassland birds. “We would like to raise the water level so that the soil wildlife will increase. That is good for many species of birds, such as black-tailed godwits, curlews, lapwings and oystercatchers. And we want maybe in the future to make the banks of the ditches more environmentally friendly, by flattening them. Visitors to the area will soon have a more varied landscape experience.”
