Description

To compensate for some of the disruption caused by the construction of the 380 kV overhead line linking Krümmel and Görries, 50Hertz has earmarked an area covering 10 ha to create new habitats and improve sites used by migrating birds. The creation of five new lakes (total investment: EUR 100,000) returns some of the original character to the Siebendörfer Moor area and provides new habitats for cranes, ground-breeding birds and other open-country animals. This area is extremely important as a stopover for migrating birds and as a nesting site for sea eagles and bitterns.
