The LIFE project continues with the ring-marking of the lesser spotted eagle juveniles. This activity is carried out in two locations: in Piemontul Făgăraș where the SOR team activates and on a larger area, including Podișul Hârtibaciului and Dealurile Târnavelor – Valea Nirajului, where the Milvus Group association members monitor the activity of the A. Pomarina from around. We will provide details about the ring-marking of the juveniles from the Podișul Hârtibaciului and Dealurile Târnavelor – Valea Nirajului SPAs in another article.
Although the surface monitored by the SOR team members is smaller as it only covers the Piemontul Făgăraș SPA, the terrain makes their activity very difficult: steep slopes, compact forest etc. Even so, in mid-July the SOR team managed to mark 4 Lesser Spotted Eagle juveniles in the territory between the localities Vadu and Porumbacu. The ring marking of the juveniles was performed by the Dutch SOR volunteer Jan van Dierman together with Mihai Cimpean, project officer from ARPM Sibiu.

Illegal actions which affect the lesser spotted eagle
Last Updated on Monday, 23 July 2012 09:33 Written by Administrator Thursday, 05 July 2012 06:44
In the course of May 2012 several members of the Milvus Group Association have continued to have field trips in ROSPA0028 Dealurile Târnavei – Valea Nirajului. On this occasion they discovered several illegal activities with a direct impact on the nesting activity of the lesser spotted eagle.
Illegal tree cuttings
In the forest close to Valea village, in the county of Mureş, the Milvus team discovered illegal activities of trees cutting identical to the ones notified in April, when a report and a notification were sent to the Brasov Territorial Forestry and Hunting Authority. During the recent inspections from May 2012, they discovered at least another 15 stumps resulted from the illegal cutting of Sessile Oak (Quercus petraea) and at least 15 other stumps of hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). The image below (Map 1) shows the location of some of the stumps marked on the GPS and the positioning of the respective area in the landscape.

These nests were discovered during the systematic searches carried out in the previous years and in the spring of 2012 around the communities of Lisa, Dejani, Mărgineni, Sâmbăta de Sus, Măliniş, Breaza, Berivoi, Turnu Olteţ, Avrig and the town of Victoria.

Although the educational activity designed for the schools from the key projects sites has already reached its target (to raise awareness among at least 1200 pupils from 46 schools) we shall not stop here. So far we have organized educational sessions with at least 2000 pupils from over 50 schools from the key sites and we shall continue to organize educational activities which also involve pupils from the schools located inside the other 9 Natura 2000 sites covered by the project.
