Bocian Biały w dolinach rzek

Storks treated in Biebrza National Park rehabilitation center in Grzędy will be tracked this year as well.

This time, tracking devices were put on three young birds. The goal is to evaluate the effectiveness of stork treatment in such centers, and their behavior after leaving them.

Unfortunately, I do not bring any good news: so far none of the birds have reached Africa. They all either died on power lines or were killed by predators. The mounted tracking devices are the "recovered" ones. We asked our befriended ornithologists from other countries to search for dead storks and send us the attached transmitters back, or if the birds died in Poland, we looked for them ourselves.

This bleak picture shows the enormous importance of the Life project, which aims to secure all dangerous utility poles.

We hope that a successful flight awaits those three! Keep your fingers crossed!
