After several years , they are finally back. This summer I was able to count twelve curlews in one day . Unfortunatly this will become a wind farm in the near future .
Beobachtet im Merfelder Bruch bei der Wildpferdebahn . Diesen Sommer konnte ich in einer Stunde 12 Große Brachvögel zählen. Hoffen wir mal , das der Windpark nicht bis in diese Gegend kommt.
