In recent years the numbers of several grassland birds have decreased. Especially the number of black-tailed godwits has decreased rapidly. Few -days-old black-tailed godwit chicks are killed during mowing, this is because they are not able to escape from the mowing machine. They do not flee but press themselves on the ground to hide from possible predators. In this report we have tried to evaluate the possibilities or find new solutions to prevent the chick from being killed by mowing. We have tried to find technological and non-technological solutions to detect the chicks or to scare them away.
