Rottige Meenthe en Brandemeer. 29/08/00; Friesland; 1,369 ha; 52°51’N 05°53’E; Natura 2000 (SPA, SAC). The boundary of the Ramsar Site has been aligned with the boundary of the Natura 2000 site, resulting in the addition of the Brandemeer Nature Reserve and an increase in area of 234 ha. The Site is an open landscape of seasonally flooded agricultural land with small ponds and canals made by peat excavations in the past. The area lies downstream of the small Linde and Tjonger rivers, and it is rich in wet grasslands and heath, peatland, reed marshes and bog woodland characterized by alder and birch trees. The Site is important for nationally endangered bird species such as the great bittern and great reed warbler, mammals such as the European otter, and fish. In addition, it supports vulnerable Sphagnum moss species and endangered vascular plants such as fen orchid. Land use within the Site includes recreation and tourism, road infrastructure, commercial fisheries, reed cutting, water management, conservation and research. Factors which might adversely affect it are tourism, drainage of surrounding farmlands and eutrophication. Ramsar Site no.1277. Most recent RIS information: 2013.
