This year’s breeding season of Imperial eagles looked promising at its beginning. In total, birds occupied eight territories, all in southern Moravia. Sadly, only two pairs were successful and raised four chicks (two chicks each). In July, two young eagles got backpacks equipped with hi-tech GPS-GSM loggers.
The series of illegal attacks on birds of prey around Zistersdorf (Lower Austria) has still not ended. After passers-by reported a number of dead animals in February, the results of the investigation are now in: one strictly protected Marsh Harrier and a house cat were shot, one stone marten was poisoned.
