The construction site was officially passed to the company, which will carry out revitalization works on the restoration of the steep river bank in Petržalka – Ovsište at the beginning of October.
Nesting of sand martins is known from the past at this site.
Revitalization activities on the river bank are to create conditions for the nesting of sand martins at this section of the Danube river in Bratislava. By modifying the shoreline, the exposed steep banks will be restored, which sand martins do need for their nesting. Abundant supply of food around these banks will also attract these small swallowlike birds. Foraging birds will find a plenty of small insect species to feed themselves and feed their youngsters – and their appetite for mosquitoes is very decent. Visitors of this site can learn about our activity from informative boards that we have installed here.
