Welcome to!

The Strohauser Plate is an island within the German river Weser. It is 470 ha large and has to present a high density of breeding meadow birds like lapwings and redshanks. In winter time there are flocks of roosting geese. It is part of a NATURA2000 area.

Agriculture is very difficult on this island because it is not easy to transport products from the island to the consumers. 50% of the island is in use, the others are reeds and very attractive for reed birds. The island is occupied by a society for bird protection (Der Mellumrat)

Our webcam is the oldest one at our region.
