New breeding islands for rare and endangered birds in the LIFE area

In the last days new breeding islands for rare and endangered bird species were constructed in the frame of LIFE MANSALT project.

With light construction machinery we built 45 new islands of different shapes, heights and sizes. The largest island is more than 50 m long and about 6 m wide. In this area are nesting numerous Common Terns, Little Terns, Avocets, Black-winged Stilts and the Redshanks, as well as the Kentish Plovers. Some of the muddy islands remained after the construction works in the early 80's in this area. Since the conditions for the construction of these islands were optimal this year (little rain, better accessibility due to other LIFE works..), we decided to build new mud islands, where nesting birds could find their new nesting site in the following year. With the new islands built the basins can now be completely flooded with sea water which will stop the mammalian predators such as the fox and marten.
