Meadow Birds Return To Dutch Polder

Meadow birds have returned to the Aalkeetbuitenpolder in South Holland. Due to measures taken by the agriculture group Vockestaert, the polder will host hundreds, if not thousands, of godwits, snipes, lapwings and plovers in the coming months.

In the last few years the polder has been much too dry to host the birds. The polder now has its own water system, including a dam which keeps the water levels high enough for the birds.
