In partnership with the local community and with the help of the mayor we decided to rebuild and renovate the old nesting in the sand walls in the area.
Finally, we have revovated 6 walls and hope Bee-eaters and Rollers will decide to nest in future years.
Maybe it will take time to attract birds, but you never know. I hope that they will take up sand walls in the next breeding season.
Like every year during the winter months we feed songbirds in the area of the house. This year we have delivered around 350 kg of sunflower seeds and 30 kg peanuts.
We feed in 3 locations and each feeder can hold 10 kg seeds, enough for 1 week.
Due to the great interest to my photo hides I decided to create another in the forest near the cottage. It will be suitable for 4 photographers will also have a small pond in front size 9 square meters which will be suitable for bathroom of birds in hot days. In winter i will use in winter tours where will use it like a feeding station for songbirds.
We are preparing new photo tour related in the winter of Hawfinch, Sombre Tit and woodpeckers. Very often some of photographers do not have time for full week tour or want to specialize only on some bird species like Hawfinches or woodpeckers, so for them this is the ideal winter short photographic tour.
Renovating old nesting soil wall for Bee-eaters and Rollers. It was very old and the grass and small bushes already atack the soil. I hope the population of Bee-eaters and Rollers will increase.
This is the part from our nature conservation program. In past years we put more 150 nest boxes for Rollers, Hoopoe and small passerins
