Egret colonies

In spring and summer 2006 entire monitoring of all egret and cormorant colonies known on the Bulgarian territory was conducted. It was supported by Balkani Wildlife Society and WWF Danube-Carpathian programme. 24 Bulgarian colonies and 3 located on the Romanian islands in the Danube River were included. It was the first complete study in Bulgaria of all nesting egrets, cormorants, ibises and spoonbills within one breeding season.
