In July 2015, in the frame of the LIFE project, colleagues of Fertő-Hanság National Park Directorate successfully installed a camera at an Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca) nest located in the national park. The photos taken by the camera revealed that the device did not disturb the adult birds, they spent long time in the nest. The photos also showed that the adult female spent the night in the nest, sleeping 10-30 minutes in the “classical” position, with the head laid on its back.

A "big family" of sakers found while ringing chicks

In the past few days juvenile saker falcons started to fledge, however ringing is still ongoing at the late brood.

This year, ringers found a brood of sakers with 6 chicks, which was an unusual and very rare phenomenon as sakers used to have five chicks at maximum. The chicks - five males and one female - were in good condition.

Almost 20 years ago, another nest with six eggs was found, but that breeding failed in the end.
