This summer, twelve Imperial Eagle chicks have fledged in the Borsodi-Mezőség Protected Area and the surrounding Natura 2000 areas, in the Bükki National Park.
We managed to locate a new breeding pair this year. Two chicks hatched here, one of which needed to be saved later because of injuries caused by plastic strings on the legs. In 2016, within the framework of HELICON LIFE+ programme, one of the active nests was guarded with the help of 26 volunteers. Their hard work, carried out in nomadic conditions, eventually paid off and was successful, and both chicks fledged all right.
We would like to thank all our participants, volunteers, and local farmers for their invaluable help with these images of the recently fledged eaglets!
