Fairly common breeder of wet meadows, cattle pastures. Needs at least patches of higher herbs and perching sites, avoids short vegetation. The breeding population mod- erately declined between 1999 and 2018 (?3.7 ± 2.0%, p<0.05). First males may arrive in late February, spring mi- gration peaks in late April. Autumn migration peaks in early September. A few may stay until November.
