In the Evros Delta, I like to:

Attracting the breeding of Dalmatian Pelicans at the Evros Delta

Last year, Evros Delta Management Authority in co-operation with Birdwing organization, started a project, in order to attract the breeding of Dalmatian Pelicans at the Evros Delta.

Dalmatian Pelicans used to breed in Evros Delta and as we realized that suitable conditions (habitat, food, lack of disturbance) exist in parts of the wetland for the breeding of the species, we started a project to attract it.

In autumn 2012, after choosing a suitable spot, we created a space in an islet of Drana Lagoon, were thick vegetation was cut, pieces or reeds were placed, as well as nest dummies were constructed.

This year, we moved one a step forward, constructing, with a donation of Birdwing, a wooden platform, which will never be covered by water and could host the breeding of the species. Soon, we will place material for the construction of the nests (reeds, grass) and more nest dummies and we will look forward for the pelicans to use the platform.
