Last year 6 saker falcons were tagged with the satellite transmitters to identify the dangerous utility poles/lines located in the home range of breeding pairs and priority habitats in Slovakia. The main finding of the present study is the fact that none of the monitored individuals survived the dispersal period.


On Friday, April 22, Earth Day is commemorated and celebrated by people all around the world. This year's theme is: Invest in Our Planet. To mark the occasion, a number of events will be organized for the participants and we are glad to be part of it!

E.1.2 Lecture SK 1 05 04 2022Our project is part of an exhibition that runs from 18.3.-12.6.2022 in the Central Slovak Museum in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. Visitors can learn about birds and power lines topics as well as the main activities of the project through exhibits, accompanying texts, and an information board. On 5.4.2022, the scientific coordinator Marek Gális also informed the visitors through a presentation and a guided lecture about our project and activities. 


The swans are iconic species, known from various fairy tales and stories thanks to their elegance. They are also threatened by collisions with power lines due to their huge size and weight. Watch the short video made by the Raptor Protection of Slovakia about the species, threats, and monitoring that is being conducted under our project on transmission power lines in Slovakia with cooperation with project partner Slovenská elektrizačná prenosová sústava, a.s. (SEPS) and find out more! :)



The database was designed under action A1 (Elaborate monitoring scheme, develop database and training of participants) and contains all data gathered under actions C1 (Preventing collisions of birds with electric power lines) and C2 (Protecting birds against electrocution on distribution and railway power lines) during the recognition survey.

In order to ensure birds' safety during their migration routes, the first batch – 640 bird flight diverters have been installed on the high-voltage transmission lines crossing the Danube in Hungary, Százhalombatta. What challenges needed to be overcome and what technology was used for the installation of flight diverters over the Danube? Check out the short video made by our project partner MAVIR - Az energia irányítója and find out more! :)
