Sighting of a tagged Imperial Eagle by Jozef Chavko

These impressive photos were taken by our Bustard friend Jozef Chavko from the Raptor Protection Slovakia (Ochrana dravcov na Slovensku). The photos show an imperial eagle in the second calendar year, who was tagged on 06.07.2018 by the TB Raab in the March-Thaya-Auen in coordination with DI Hans Jörg Damm, Director of Agriculture and Forest Wilfersdorf of the Foundation Prince Liechtenstein and the professional hunter Stefan Weeks.
The bird stayed in Lower Austria and the Czech Republic for a long time after the tagging, but was spotted and photographed in the Bustard area Parndorfer Platte - Heideboden on the 2nd and 3rd of February. We hope that this bird will continue to provide many important information to learn more about the influence of the Imperial Eagle on the Great Bustard and to successfully protect both species.

Juvenile Bustard spotted in Marchfeld!

Reason for joy. During the night, at 1:45 am, a juvenile bustard was photographed by farmer Robert Kriegl in a fallow field in Marchfeld. Fortunately, the farmer has taken consideration. Because the fallow should have been chopped today - now once shifted by 2-3 weeks - and Bustard expert Rainer Raab will ride along and watch, because in the Marchfeld every juvenile Bustard is very much needed.
