In the Dyje River, a rare migratory falcon grew. For the first time in fifty years

In the Dyje River, a rare migratory falcon grew. For the first time in fifty years In the spring a couple of sokols and summer cubs. Ornithologists in Podyjí after fifty years confirmed the nesting of rare migratory falcons. This shows a trend of increasing their quantity in the Czech Republic. Four couples are probably nesting in Moravia, and experts believe that their numbers will grow in the coming years. It informs the Podyjí National Park.

"In the spring of this year, the ornithologists saw the ritual rituals of an adult pair of falcons in the canyon of the river, and then they dug into the Austrian part of Podyjí," says Znojmo ornithologist Vlasta Škorpíková. "We were enthusiastic at the beginning of June to watch the young falcons at the Dyje Valley during the first attempts at flight , "He adds.

The falcon's falcon is known for its fast flight and its distinctive, elegant coloring. He used to be a fairly common predator of the cultural landscape of the world. Due to the widespread use of chemical spraying, harvesting and hunting, its stocks have reached a minimum in some areas.

"The last documented nesting in the Podyjí National Park dates back to 1967, when a couple of people settled the ruins of Nový Hrádek," says Zdeněk Mačát , zoologist of the Podyjí National Park. "After the collapse of the pan-European population of sokols, until the 1990s, nobody saw "The change came after 1990 when the Sokol reappears in the Podyjí.

In the mid-1990s, experts in Podyjí launched five artificial breeders. But they did not live here and their fate is unknown. "We have begun to observe the decline in the occurrence of Sokol over Podyjí after 2004. It is even attempts to incarnate. Until this year, however, none of them was demonstrably successful, " says Mačát.

Of migratory falcons are increasing throughout the Czech Republic. The current population reaches and perhaps exceeds the documented historical maxima. South Moravia is one of the last of these birds of historically populated places to return. "In 2017, four couples nestled here, which is far from the capacity of the area. The trend of increasing the number of this beautiful predator will probably continue, " says Škorpíková.
