Peregrine Falcon Reintroduction at CEZ Skawina!

We are pleased to announce that on June 26, 2023, Peregrine Falcon Reintroduction 2.0 started at CEZ Skawina!

Thanks to the cooperation of the Małopolska Ornithological Society, the Association for the Protection of Wild Animals "SOKÓŁ," the CEZ Skawina Power Plant, and falconers Adam Mroczek and Wojciech Sularz, we have once again reintroduced young peregrine falcons into the nest on the power plant chimney in Skawina. This time, 3 young males marked with rings 7DS, 8DS, and 9DS will soon join the peregrine falcon population in Małopolska. One of them has been equipped with a transmitter, which was purchased thanks to the donors supporting our project. We sincerely THANK EVERYONE who helped with the purchase of the logger for one of the birds!

You can watch the nest with the birds on the live feed here: https://mto-kr.pl/transmisja-on-line-z-platformy-legowej…/

Today, we can already say that the previous reintroduction is starting to bear fruit, but more on that soon... We hope that the second part of the project will be as important and productive as the previous efforts, and we all keep our fingers crossed for its success.
