The European population of 30,300-63,400 pairs (forming 30% of the global population) (BirdLife International 2015) suffered a large decline during 1970-1990 (Tucker & Heath 1994) and continued to decline during 1990-2000. The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction. The European population (forming 30% of the global population) is estimated to be decreasing at a rate approaching 30% in 17.1 years (three generations) (BirdLife International 2015). One of the factors of mortality is electrocution (Fidlóczky et al. 2014, Demeter et al. 2018). Under the LIFE Danube Free Sky project, 50 nest boxes will be installed for The Red-footed Falcon to support breeding opportunities.
