Indeling

Ardeidae [familie]
Botaurus [genus] (1/1)
stellaris [soort]

The breeding distribution is confined to larger marshlands. Only few sites hold over 10 bp, with a marked stronghold in the Oostvaardersplassen (28-43 bp in 1998-2000), in the newly reclaimed polder Zuidelijk Flevoland. Since the 1970s, half of all occupied atlas squares became depleted, due to the disappearance of wet reedbeds. The population did not fully recover from losses caused by some severe winters. Local increases often coincide with renaturation projects or habitat improvement. In 1998-2000 some 200-250 bp were recorded (1970-78: at least 450-550).
