Good meadow bird news from Dutch Friesland


This is a black-tailed godwit video from Sweden.

Warden Jacob Hanenburg reports today about Surhuizumermieden nature reserve in Friesland province in the Netherlands (translated):

In 2008 in the 80 hectare nature reserve south of Buitenpost only 14 black-tailed godwit couples bred. In 2015, the number had increased by a factor of five to 73 couples! A similar picture emerges for other wader species such as northern lapwing, redshank, snipe and shoveler. By State Forest Service management and good special meadow bird measures these birds do exceptionally well in the area. One positive note in the Year of the Lapwing.
