Nature’s mosaics observed again at the Kapellebank

The Kapellebank is the hotspot of self-organized patterns in diatoms, no tidal flat that I know of in the Netherlands has them more clearly. Also this year, they were clearly observable. It is striking how easily the tidal flat is given up as a so-called alternative option for nature compensation, where a thick layer of clay will be deposited on top of this tidal flat to “generate nature”.
