The recognition field survey has started in February 202Power lines on the field1 and will last until the end of March 2021. During this period, around 1099 km of power lines and 10900 potentially dangerous utility poles will be examined and their level of riskiness for birds will be evaluated based on the findings (number of the cadavers found under the power lines/utility poles).

The field assistants from all project countries passed the field survey training beforehand to ensure the unified, systematic, and coordinated data gathering across the whole project area.
