Great reed warblers in the Reeuwijkse Plassen

In 2018 the reed fringes around lakes in the Reeuwijkse Plassen were investigated for their suitability as a breeding biotope for great reed warblers. Characteristics such as stem density, height, water depth and embankment have been mapped for the most important reeds. Based on this a plan was made for design and management. The project was commissioned by Vogelbescherming Nederland (Birdlife Netherlands) and in collaboration with Watersnip Advies.
