During the February 21st and 22nd 2020., members and volunteers from BirdLife Serbia (Bird Protection and Study Sociecty of Serbia) have choose two old oak trees, one poplar and one acacia tree to set up 4 new nesting platforms for eagles near the Special Nature Reserve "Pastures of the Great Bustard", at Novi Knezevac municipality, Serbia.
The PannonEagle LIFE project accepted the invitation of the Portugese non-governmental organization Liga para a Protecção da Natureza (LPN, https://www.lpn.pt/en) and attended the conference titled Raptors Conservation in Castro Verde between 14 and 16 November, 2019.
We have reported about the release of two Imperial Eagles back to the wild in early November, 2019. Thanks to their satellite tags we know that they have remained in the same area, close to their release site in the Jászság.
In recent years, numerous illegal poisonings were discovered, and as in the last case that occurred three weeks ago, all of those targeted almost exclusively predators. MME/Birdlife along with nature conservation organizations and concerned authorities managed to step up against it with success in several cases, thus its occurrence has been significantly reduced compared to the period of 2011-2013.
In January a dead white-tailed eagle was found by a jogger in Lower Austria. The female was found on a freight road. The dead animal was lying on the ground without any indication of a natural cause of death. A complaint was filed and the bird was sent to the laboratory for examination. The analysis proofed poisoning by Carbofuran.
