Project welcomes visitors from Germany

Posted on Thursday, June 27th, 2013

This week we have had three visitors from the German great bustard society (www.grosstrappe.de). The great bustard rear and release programme taking place in Germany is the most similar to the project in the UK, although there they are reinforcing existing populations rather than creating a new population. This means there is lots of opportunity to share knowledge between the two projects, and lots that each can learn from the other.

We showed our visitors the two release sites and discussed all aspects of the project, from hand rearing juvenile great bustards through release techniques to post-release monitoring and habitat creation. Many ideas were shared, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to return to Germany during the great bustard release period there, later this summer.
