Donation from MYBulgaria.info
We had some great news this week as we've received a donation from www.mybulgaria.info that will cover the cost of a SATNAV/GPS device which will enable us to more easily find nesting boxes in the field.
We're currently monitoring a handful of boxes on behalf of our collegues at BSPB in Svishtov, I say 'monitoring' what I actually mean is that I spend the odd afternoon scrambling about on my hands and knees tearing lumps out of myself on the wild roses, nettles and Acacia trees in my usually unsuccessful attempts to locate the boxes.
Having GPS will mean that we can now accurately mark the position of these and the new boxes that we will be putting up next Spring, saving us time and skin along the way.
You can see from this pic how difficult they can be to locate :-)
Big thanks from all at Srebarna Birding to the good people at MYBG.
