Only a couple of days after they were accommodated in their new temporary home, the Lesser kestrels of the Centre, who are on their way to freedom gladly, are happily examining their new dwelling and the different types of artificial nesting in it.
We are happy that the little falcons are showing such interest in the facilities installed by our team, as this was our idea in the first place. The birds, 30 in total, who are already one-year-old and able to breed, should recognize the same artificial platforms placed by our team in the vicinity of the place of release of the Lesser kestrels, and choose to raise their future offspring in them!
But that’s by far not all from the Centre!
The team of the “LIFE for Lesser kestrel” project LIFE19/NAT/BG/001017 shared with us their great observations on the couples breeding here. For a couple of days, 3 of the male birds already occupy parts of the nests in the aviary where they live, attracting their future females.
We would like to remind you that at the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre of Green Balkans there live 20 birds which are designated as a breeding flock, and whose hatchlings will be released into the wild under the “LIFE for Lesser kestrel” project LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017.
