Start in the breeding season 2022
You may have noticed the many "UFOs" or "flying wimps," as the lapwings are sometimes jokingly called in Germany. These nicknames come from their distinctive call and their way of flying acrobatically. Many are still on migration, but the first ones are looking for suitable territories for breeding in our areas. Reason enough to start with the erection of the mobile protection fences in the polder Mönkebude. We had energetic support from volunteers and the nature parks "Am Stettiner Haff" and "Insel Usedom" and were able to place a total of 4300 m of fence on two areas. Now we hope for sufficient protection against predatory mammals as well as a successful breeding and raising of the chicks in this season.
