Successful season for our Black Terns!


It’s not just anti-poaching operations and bird protection camps at CABS! Within the framework of Black Tern Project on the Old Elbe near Jerichow (Saxony-Anhalt) and on Lake Pritzerber (Brandenburg), almost 30 pairs raised a total of 27 young birds this year. Last year, only 16 young birds fledged the nests. Unfortunately, again this season, some broods failed due to fluctuating water levels and predation. In the last thirty years their population in Germany has decreased by more than 50%. With around 1200 breeding pairs left throughout the whole country. In order to help conserve the species, around 90 small nesting rafts are installed each year on the lakes and shorelines by CABS volunteers!
