Damyan Petkov 1Power lines form an unnatural barrier in the landscape and an obstacle for many species of animals. However, wild birds are the most affected by their presence. Flying birds are at risk of striking power lines that they do not notice in time. Birds of prey, in particular, like to use the 22 kV power poles as a resting place or to hunt for prey. But what happens when they connect two wires when they land? How can we prevent this and protect them?




Damyan Petkov 1At the end of July, the activities for monitoring the artificial nesting boxes for Red-footed Falcons and European rollers, which were installed last winter and spring in suitable habitats in Northern and Northwestern Bulgaria, were completed.


Joint teams from the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB) and Electrodistribution Grid West ЕAD successfully installed 50 nesting boxes for both bird species as part of the LIFE Danube Free Sky project.
