Our three tagged birds are currently wintering in the southern countries of Africa, but the approaching dry season signals that they can soon set off. Within a few weeks, they start their spring migration towards their breeding grounds. Let us introduce them to you, so that you can more easily follow their adventures.
The 12th powerline survey is being organised this year by BirdLife Hungary. The main objective of this programme is to assess, and map the damage to bird populations (lethal collisions, and electrocution) caused by the pylons and power lines.
Apart from precisely mapping un-insulated pole-tops, the efficiency of previous insulation solutions, and other protective equipment can also be surveyed this way.
