Winterswijk area, Netherlands

Together for the Patridge

We give the rare partridge a beautiful habitat, in a varied arable landscape with hedgerows, hedges and flowery field edges.

Together we create more biodiversity in the arable landscape

At Groot Deunk, just west of Winterswijk in the Netherlands, local volunteers are working on an agricultural landscape in which there is plenty of space for nature. Old landscape elements such as hedgerows and hedges are being restored and a beautifully varied landscape with fields, orchards and flowery field edges is being created.

In such a landscape the partridge feels at home. This bird species has declined dramatically in the Netherlands in recent decades, but with the right measures we will give it another chance. In the fields the birds find seeds that remain after the harvest, in the flowery edges their chicks hunt for insects. And when danger threatens, they can quickly take shelter under wooded banks and hedges.

The partridge is the figurehead of the field nature. Where partridges live, other birds as well as mammals, reptiles and insects usually do well. Whoever helps the partridge, contributes to the biodiversity in the entire arable landscape!
