Management plan for birds and air safety De Peel

The landscape can have effect on air safety. This was the case for the airbase at De Peel in the Netherlands. Sand and gravel extractions in the area of the airbase was found to have an affect on flight safety.

Through the deepening of the lakes through sand and gravel extraction, around 165 ha of open water was created. It is possible that this area of water may be used by roosting wildfowl. The daily movements to and from the roost site may cause a risk to air traffic at the nearby airbase at De Peel.

We have estimated the possible consequences for air traffic and have provided measures to reduce any risks.
