Sokol raroh Ochrana dravcov na Slovensku Jozef Chavko 2Great news from Slovakia - the successful previous year in terms of the number of chicks was surpassed! This year the team from the Coordinating Beneficiary Raptor Protection of Slovakia recorded over 160 chicks in total! The Saker Falcon, also called the jewel of our lowlands, was struggling to find a sufficient supply of nests in natural conditions (as it does not build its own nests). With the gradual destruction of nesting habitats, especially by intensive forestry activities, falcons lost the space for breeding.

Project partners Raptor Protection of Slovakia in cooperation with the Slovak Electricity Transmission System, a.s., (SEPS) have decided to support the nesting opportunities with nest boxes that are being systematically installed on the transmission lines since 2000. The falcons responded immediately and now almost the entire Slovak population nests in boxes installed on the poles of the high-voltage power lines.
We are thankful that we can witness the gradual return of the rare Saker Falcon to our lowlands.
