Toelichting Meadow birds are a typically Dutch phenomenon comparable to clogs, windmills, tulip fields and Van Gogh. In the moist areas in the west and north of The Netherlands especially, a vast number of these birds breed at high densities on agricultural land, particularly meadows (Piersma 1986; Beintema 1986, 1991a). Here, Lapwing Vaneflus vaneflus, Black-tailed Godwit Limosa limosa, Oystercatcher Haematopus ostralegus, Redshank Tringa totanus, Mallard Anas platyrhynchos and ShovelerAnas clypeata constitute typical bird communities, in combination with smaller numbers of Ruff Philomachus pugnax, Snipe Gallinago gallinago, Garganey Anas querquedula and several passerines such as Skylark Alauda arvensis, Meadow Pipit Anthus pratensis and Yellow Wagtail Montacilla flava flava (Verstrael 1987). Consequently, The Netherlands is an important area for many meadow birds, for example holding 85-90% of the northwest European population of the nominate race of Black-tailed Godwit (Mulder 1972; Piersma 1986; Van Dijk et al. 1989; Beintema 1991 b). Most breeding waders inhabit normal agricultural fields, instead of nature reserves, which covers only 9% of the total agricultural area of the Noord-Holland province (WWNN 1982).
