Good news has arrived from nearly all regions from Hungary! Record number of Red-footed Falcons commenced their breeding, with moth clutches being 4 egg strong, only a handful of nests contain 3 or 2 eggs. The Vásárhelyi Plains area set a new standard in breeding density, as more than 120 pairs are currently in the early stages of breeding in a mere 12 000 ha puszta area, a number that doubles that of previous years. (2011/06/24)
Red-footed Falcons arrived to their breeding sites in Serbia and Hungary in the past couple of days. Some of the first birds to arrive already were marked in previous years with colour rings making their identification possible. (2011/05/25)
Although the Hungarian-Romanian Red-footed Falcon LIFE program ended in 2009, the staff carried out the necessary maintenance works in the scope of the After LIFE program. (2011/05/04)
The kick-off meeting of the project aiming to conserve the Roller and the Red-footed Falcon was held on the 11th of February 2011 in the Hotel Royal of Senta, Serbia. (2011/02/15)

Conservation of Falco vespertinus in the Pannonian Region

Within the scope of the LIFE Nature project „Conservation of Falco vespertinus in the Pannonian Region” we’ve developed a new monitoring method to monitor population trends and the effects of conservation measures taken. Here we conclude the most important information concerning data collection:

  • Rook breeding population monitoring, inspection of rookeries
  • Assessing the presence of red-footed falcons at a rookery
  • Establishing artificial nest-box colonies
  • Systematic inspection and maintenance of artificial colonies
  • Red footed falcon population monitoring
    • a) Red footed falcon breeding population monitoring
    • b) Colour ringing and identifying marked birds
    • c) Monitoring pre-migration roost sites
  • Surveying dangerous power lines and pylons
  • Field observations and interesting sightings
