Meadow birds

Common Snipe

For the protection of the Snipe, it is essential to conserve and restore suitable wet habitats. This includes, in particular, the rewetting of structurally and nutrient-rich grasslands with shallow waters and shallow shore areas. 

The breeding areas may only be managed extensively, i.e. without fertilisers and pesticides, among other things. The renaturation of raised bogs also contributes to the conservation of the Snipe.
