Specially protected natural areas of the Leningrad region have begun to prepare for spring. Ornithologists prepare artificial nests for birds. Eight regional nature reserves have started installing them.
The press service of the Directorate of Protected Areas of the Leningrad region said that such work has been carried out on the territory of the reserve for at least eight years. The main task in this case is to provide nesting sites for bird species that naturally nest in hollows.
This is because suitable nesting sites are usually found in old trees, which are now few in number in the area. Ornithologists have established three types of artificial nests: nest boxes for small birds, egg nests for nesting ducks such as goldeneye, merganser, booty, and platforms for large predators. This was said by the general director of Forest Territory LLC Alexander Markovsky.
Earlier, “MK in the Leningrad region” reported that more than 2 million flowers were delivered to St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region by March 8.
