  Eider River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Eider (-German; Danish: Ejderen; Latin: Egdor or Egdore) is the longest river of the German state of Schleswig-Holstein.
The middle part of the Eider was appropriated for use as part of the Kiel Canal.
In the early Middle Ages the Eider was the border between the Saxons and the Danes, as reported by Adam of Bremen in 1076.

 Morphological Changes at the Eider Estuary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The approximately 188 km long Eider is the longest river of Schleswig-Holstein and, together with the Eiderstedt peninsula, marks the upper limit of the Dithmarschen county.
The river dynamics are influenced by the tidal range until as much as 36 km upstream in the location of Nordfeld.
The Eider estuary undergoes changes in shape and volume with no clear, unidirectional pattern, unlike the previous cases (such as the landwards migration of D-Steert).

 The Falcon on the Baltic by E.F. Knight chapter 9   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The distance from the mouth of the Eider to Kiel Bay is, as the crow flies, rather more than fifty miles, but so tortuous is the route by river and canal that I imagine it must be double that distance.
This bridge, the only one between the sea and Rendsburg, is built at a sharp bend of the river, and the tide runs under it with great velocity and in an oblique direction, so that sailing-vessels have difficulty in passing safely through the narrow opening left by the swinging portion of the bridge.
The scene was always lively and cheerful, and I soon came to the conclusion that the Eider is one of the pleasantest rivers in Europe for a yacht cruise.

As early as 1100 a castle was built on the ‘Eider’ island, where the main military and trade routes met and crossed the river Eider.
Countless native sailors travelled the river Eider, merchants from Rendsburg traded with wood and grain from the surrounding areas and took part in the transit trade between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.
The construction of the Eider Canal was one of the first steps to improving the economic situation, however, the ditches and bastions stopped the city from expanding and attracting new trades and business.

 Denmark Sweden Prussia War 1848-1850
A countermovement developed among the Danish population in northern, or North, Schleswig and from 1838 in Denmark itself, where the Liberals insisted that Schleswig had belonged to Denmark for centuries and that the frontier between Germany and Denmark must be the Eider River (which had historically marked the border between Schleswig and Holstein).
When the liberal German-speaking population in Schleswig opposed autocratic rule and demanded a free constitution and affiliation to Holstein and the German Confederation, a Danish National Liberal movement emerged and demanded that Schleswig be incorporated in Denmark (the Eider Policy, named for the Eider River, which formed the southern boundary of Schleswig).
The Eider Policy was thus abandoned, and the June constitution of 1849 applied only to Denmark.

 [No title]
This desire of the "Eider Danes" to separate the Duchy of Schleswig from Holstein was opposed by the people of Schleswig-Holstein, who, being more partial to Germany, demanded that Schleswig be separated from Denmark.
The Holstein estates, predisposed to Germany as they were, responded in December 1844 by agreeing upon the "Schleswig-Holstein Program," which proclaimed that Schleswig and Holstein were separate from Denmark, that the German law of succession (in the male line) was recognized in both duchies, and that the close tie between them must not be violated.
Three days later Orla Lehmann, the leading Eider Dane, sharply rejected the demands raised by the people of Schleswig-Holstein, also dismissing the proposal to have the communities in Schleswig vote on their national affiliation.

An immature or female Common Eider was found today in Lake Erie just west of the "Mew Gull" Marina in Lake Co. Because this area is hunted extensively we have a concern that someone might go gunning for this bird as a trophy.
Other notables were a fl duck that was hanging out near (and occasionally on) the beach west of the platform; a group of perhaps thirty snow buntings that stopped briefly and then continued west; a pair of scaup; two gadwalls; a flying common loon; and several Bonaparte's gulls.
