The Bulgarian Society for the protection of birds (BSPB) has installed a new type of 20 aluminium nest boxes for the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria. The new nest boxes were designed during the Saker Falcon conservation project in Hungary.
The new nests long life aluminium constructions with roofs and two side protection from unfavourable atmospheric conditions. They are installed one high-voltage electric pylons.
In 2008, more than 100 nest boxes of an older, metal and wooden type, were installed.
BSPB hopes that this will help to increase the currently very low population of only 6-7 pairs of Saker Falcons in Bulgaria.
