Painter Hieronymus Bosch, new Internet site

This Spanish video is called El Bosco. La exposición del Centenario. It is about the Hieronymus Bosch exhibition in the Prado museum in Madrid. Many of the works at this exhibition were earlier at the Bosch exhibition in Den Bosch city in the Netherlands.

From the BoschDoc Internet site in the Netherlands:

BoschDoc is an online database containing source material on the ’s-Hertogenbosch painter Hieronymus Bosch. Not only the sources in which he himself is mentioned are included, but also sources giving information about his immediate surroundings, members of his family, patrons and works. These are chiefly handwritten documents, but also a number of early printed works, dating from before 1800 are included in BoschDoc.

BoschDoc is part of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project and has been carried out in the framework of the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 – 1516). The project has been made possible by the Radboud University Nijmegen, the City Archives of ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Huygens ING.

The content of BoschDoc is largely based on references in other publications. These references have been traced, expanded and if necessary updated and/or corrected. The publications containing the references are credited under the tab “Comments & References”.

Wildlife corridors, succesful for all wildlife

This video says about itself:

2 August 2012

A picture essay of Wildlife Corridors from around the world.

Dutch Vroege Vogels TV reports this week about two wildlife corridors in North Brabant province in the Netherlands.

It turns out these corridors are succesful for many kinds of wildlife:

snails, mice, rabbits, weasels, buzzards, roe deer, wild boar; all of them cross the wildlife bridge. …

A great success at both wildlife bridges is the so-called wet zone, an area with pools for amphibians. There are already eggs of common frogs found there and even a natterjack toad, a species which forester Mari de Bijl did not expect there. He also thinks that no wildlife viaducts should be allowed to be built without wet zones.

Brook lampreys are back in Dutch stream

This 1 April 2016 shows brook lampreys spawning in the Reusel brook in North Brabant province in the Netherlands.

They had become extinct there in the 1960s.

Recently, however, Reusel water quality has improved. Meanders and pebbly soil, lamprey habitat, came back. Last year, brook lampreys were reintroduced from the only other place in North Brabant where they still lived, the Dommel stream. This spring, brook lampreys are spawning in the Reusel again, for the first time after decades.
