After accidental breeding records, annual breeding was observed from 1990 onwards, mainly on buildings (e.g. power plants). The species uses nestboxes as well as old nests of Carrion Crow. The establishment of a small breeding population followed a period of booming numbers in the industrialized Ruhr-area in Germany. A breeding pair in the north­east of The Netherlands is part of a small population in the German Wadden Sea. In 1998-2001 5, 6, 7 and 8 confirmed pairs were assessed, respectively (1973-77 0-1). Additionally, 3-4 territorial pairs were present (one of which started to breed at a new location in 2001).
