PROJEKT: Restoration and management of Danube floodplain habitats
In May 2017 we managed to restore and create new wetlands in Danube floodplains near Dobrohošť. After digging a canal the water got into terrain depressions where ideal conditions for native floodplain species was created – e.g. amphibians and birds bound to open water bodies. Apart from amphibians a rare migratory birds appeared right after finishing the works – bee-eaters (Merops apiaster), which tried to find suitable place for nesting in the naked sand banks. Restoration of wetlands was done in the activity C.2 „Restoration of river branches lateral connectivity and water regime of wetlands“.
