PROJEKT: Restoration of nesting and feeding habitats of Sand Martin, Kingfisher and European Bee-eater in Danube-Morava region
Ovce v Biskupiciach

Also in 2021, we used our live mowers to maintain habitats in the cadastral area Bratislava Ružinov.  We are providing you with some beautiful shots


The major benefits of grazing:

  • suppression of the succession of shrubs species
  • restoration through the dispersal of plant seeds by animal fur and faeces
  • support of specific animal species – the faeces of larger animals provide conditions for a number of beatles species that serve as a food base for various birds
  • effective suppression of invasive and allergenic plants, e.g. goldenrod (Solidago spp.), wormwood (Artemisia spp.) and ragweed (Ambrosia spp.)
  • increasing the quantity and diversity of the food supply for Sand Martins (Riparia riparia), European Bee-eaters  (Merops apiaster) but also other insectivorous birds
  • disruption of the soil surface by hooves, which creates conditions for the reproduction of rare plant species and optimum conditions for various life forms of insects
