„Falco” rescuing fledglings

MME’s special detection dog unit and the rangers of the Bükki National Park carried out a search in May near Tard, where poisoning occurred earlier. Passing under an artificial nest-box placed for Kestrels they noticed that its bottom part came off, and the fledglings disappeared. According to the rangers who checked the nest not too long ago they were still fine.

Tracking „Schenk” – We are able to follow Eagles precisely on time nowadays

Juvenile Eagles were fitted with different kinds of transmitters in the past few years. “Schenk”’s transmitter is the only device that can communicate by radio (UHF) besides the usual GSM system. In contrast to the latter, which can provide data every half an hour, radio transmits signals with frequency up to a minute with height measurements.

Beech Marten was taped robbing a nest

The night before yesterday, a Beech Marten was caught on tape, and broadcasted live on the internet, climbing up a huge Imperial Eagle’s nest at the height of a 20 m, and ate the eggs of the Kestrel pair nesting there. Martens are widespread in Hungary, they are very clever and regularly prey on bird nests, nevertheless, it is hard to observe and as far as we know, this behaviour has never been recorded in their natural environment.

MME suggests that veterinarian medicines containing diclofenac should be banned in the E.U.

We have already reported about the newly licensed veterinarian preparations in Italy and Spain. Similar product, containing diclofenac, killed 99% of the vulture populations in India and Pakistan within a few decades. MME/Birdlife sent a letter to the Secretaries for Environment, Nature Conservation, Food Chain Supervision and Agriculture Administration at the Ministry of Rural Development.
