Two vulnerable bird species may be hobbling the government's plans to establish a udrejsecenter on the island of Lindholm I Stege Bay.
It writes Berlingske.
The case of the arctic tern and pied avocet, that have so good conditions on the island, that they would be mentioned in the basis for the preservation of parts of Lindholm as a Natura 2000-area.
- If udrejsecenteret had the character of a prison with a farm, where the prisoners were only just able to go out, it had probably not been a problem for the birds.
- But it becomes such that you can move freely on the whole island, it will be very serious, says Knud Flensted, a biologist at the Danish Ornithological Association, to Berlingske.
Both the arctic tern and pied avocet are listed in the EU birds directive, which prescribes that one must ensure the special protection areas (spas) for birds, because they are in decline in Denmark.
None of them are at the present time on the environmental protection Agency's red list, which records the plant and animal species that are rare or in danger of disappearing.
Until now, the plight of the birds has been good at Lindholm, which, among other things due to the absence of birds of prey as well as the restrictive traffic regulations, which has meant that the public does not have access to move on the island.
But it can quickly change, if there will be more activity on the island.
- It means a lot of disturbances for ynglefuglene. The birds nest on the ground, and nests and nestlings freely exposed to the weather and wind, so they are extra vulnerable during the breeding season. They are addicted to peace and quiet, says Knud Flensted to Ritzau.
according to the biologist means grounds for birds, that you should only reside close to buildings or indoors, the third of the year, when the birds are breeding.
Lindholm today houses DTU Veterinærinstituttets forskningslaboratorie. The activities, however, will be discontinued next year.
Then the plan is that there must be a udrejsecenter for udvisningsdømte aliens, rejected asylum seekers convicted of certain types of crime and persons on tolerated stay.
According to the DTU, there are 35 persons on Lindholm, but the plan is to udrejsecenteret must have a capacity for 100 persons, as well as a buffer of an additional 25 seats.
Ellen Margrethe Basse, professor in environmental law at Aarhus University, says to the newspaper that an impact assessment for the impact on the bird life are crucial in relation to the plans for Lindholm.
It will cost 759 million kroner to establish udrejsecenteret, which are scheduled to receive the first residents in 2021.
