Restytucja sokoła wędrownego – jak to się zaczęło?

W pierwszym z serii kilku tekstów o restytucji sokołów wędrownych na komin elektrowni w Skawinie opowiadamy o kulisach całej akcji. Temat opisuje Krzysztof Haja, wolontariusz MTO i jeden z opiekunów projektu.

From the very beginning of the project to create a nesting platform, we had the idea of reintroducing young peregrine falcons into a nest on the chimney of the CEZ power plant in Skawina. This was an alternative plan in case adult falcons were not present at the prepared location.

In March and April 2021, the idea gained momentum thanks to falconer Adam Mroczek from Krzywaczka. Adam offered to provide falcons for restitution in the Skawina nest free of charge. The idea was a way to commemorate and honor the recently died Professor Zbigniew Bonczar from the University of Agriculture for his work for peregrine falcons in Poland.

Our initiative quickly received support from the CEZ Skawina Management, for which we are very grateful, and we were able to begin preparatory work. The kestrels that began to appear in the nest at that time received a new nesting box in the immediate vicinity of the chimney, compensating for their closed breeding site. The process of reintroducing the falcons, originally planned for May, finally began in July and was continuously broadcast online.

The remaining tasks included the preparation and installation of the nesting cage, as well as organizing the process of feeding and caring for the young birds that were to be reintroduced. At this stage, we received support from the CEZ Skawina Power Plant Management and the TADMAR company. All preparations went smoothly; however, at the beginning of June, dark cloud hung over the entire project.

Niestety w tym roku wykluło się znacznie mniej piskląt i hodowca Adam Mroczek mógł  nam przekazać tylko jedno pisklę. Ponieważ praktykuje się wsiedlanie przynajmniej dwóch piskląt, stało się konieczne zdobycie drugiego ptaka. Rozpoczął się kolejny etap projektu o którym więcej w kolejnym  materiale, który już niebawem na naszej stronie internetowej.

The project involved the Małopolska Ornithological Society, the Association for the Protection of Wild Animals "Sokół," Adam Mroczek sokolnictwo.pl, TADMAR, and the CEZ Skawina Power Plant.
