One of the project’s key objectives was to improve Common Kestrel’s breeding conditions and seeking to achieve it, more than 500 nesting boxes were erected on the poles of the high voltage electricity transmission lines.
The report on D2 acivity “Ex-ante and post-ante monitoring on the effectiveness of the project conservation actions” was prepared (I-II)
In Klaipėda, during project (Installation of the bird protection measures on the high voltage electricity transmission grid in Lithuania) installed nest boxes are used by Kestrel. One of them erected on Klaipeda University several years is used by pair of Kestrel. This time all of you can have opportunity to watch live streaming of Kestrel live in nest box. At this time female is just starting incubation, and probably still lying eggs. As this cold spring was unusual for the birds and they started breeding season one months later than usual. When female is incubating eggs male delivers some prey items and taking place of incubation while female is eating, pray brined by him.
Over 130 participants attended the “LIFE fair/LIFE25” event, which was jointly organised by the Ministry of Environment and Environmental Project Management Agency at the University of the Applied Social Sciences in Vilnius. Minister of Environment, Mr. Kęstutis Navickas, during his welcome speech encouraged participants to submit more projects applications, and, in particular, in the field of LIFE climate change mitigation and LIFE Environmental Governance.
Implementing the project "Installation of the bird protection measures on the high voltage electricity transmission grid in Lithuania" Lithuanian Ornithological Society created a film revealing the problem of bird mortality near high voltage electricity transmission lines, reviewing project activities and bird protection measures implemented during the project. An attractive, interesting and widely available film is a perfect information source for the general public about the problems being solved during our project.
