Compensation measure ‘Hahnöfer Sand’


In 2001 the measure “Hahnöfer Sand” was implemented as a compensation for the intervention in the ‘Birds & Habitat Directive’ (BHD) by the expansion of the Airbus company. The habitat type ‘Estuaria’ (mudflat and shallow water area) had to be created as feeding and resting area for birds, especially the ’Northern Shoveler’ (Anas clypeata) and as a habitat for the ‘Elbe Water Dropwort’ (Oenanthe conioides).
