The name of our favourite bird is in honour of the German naturalist, engraver, and publisher Johann Friedrich Naumann (1780-1857). Naumann is considered to be the father of scientific ornithology in central Europe (the Deutsche Ornithologen-Gesellschaft or German Ornithological Society called its journal Naumannia) and the equivalent of John James Audubon (1785-1851) in America; the two authors were contemporary to the point of being born and dying in the same decades. He wrote, illustrated, and published books such as the “Natural History of the Birds of Germany” in twelve volumes with much of the previous work of his father Johann Andreas Naumann, whose name he placed respectfully at the beginning of the book as if he were its real author which has led some to attribute the work erroneously to the latter. He also wrote “Taxidermy or the teaching of the stuffing of all kinds of animals and the maintaining of Natural History collections in a simple and practical way” and “The eggs of the birds of Germany and neighbouring lands”, the latter being initiated together with Christian Adam Bulhe in 1818, which was precisely the year when the lesser kestrel was taxonomically described. It is strange that it is not Naumann's taxonomy that has come down to posterity but that of his friend Johann Gottlieb Fleischer (1797-1838), a German botanist and ornithologist who is responsible for the fact that the small raptor bears his name.

The State Office of Libraries, Museums, and Cultural Heritage and the State Office for the Environment have made a joint visit to the centre of the historic city of Cáceres to assess the adaptation of holes for the nesting of the lesser kestrel.

Within the framework of action C1 of the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project “The suitability of nesting sites in heritage buildings in urban ZEPAs of Extremadura”, 369 putlog holes located in various palaces and churches of the Historic City of Cáceres are expected to be adapted. With over 200 pairs of lesser kestrel, the ZEPA located in the city has one of the best preserved and most extensive historical ensembles in Europe, which has led to its declaration as a World Heritage Site.

Within the framework of action A1 (Initial census of the lesser kestrel population in urban ZEPAs and roosts of Extremadura), the first lesser kestrel census has begun. It is being carried out in the 19 urban ZEPA of Extremadura and also in two colonies because they are also urban and are included in spaces of the Natura 2000 network: the Convento de la Visitación of Puebla de Alcocer (Orellana Reservoir and Sierra de Pela ZEPA-ZEC) and the Convento de la Luz in Brozas (Alcántara and Brozas Plains ZEPA-ZEC).

One of the key actions of the LIFE-ZEPAURBAN project is action A6, the industrial manufacture of mortar-cork nest boxes for the lesser kestrel. The main objective is to test the efficiency of a new design and materials for the construction of nest boxes for this species with improved technical and ethological conditions that allow the improving of its breeding success.

As a result of working very hard since September 2016, a new nest box has been developed with the involvement of the following partners:

- DEMA, providing its experience in the designing of safe nest boxes that are ethologically adapted to the lesser kestrel

- Prefabricados Extremadura 2002, ensuring that the new nest boxes are suitable for industrial manufacture

- INTROMAC, responsible for testing the materials to be used and their dosage

- The State Office for the Environment as coordinator of the LIFE project, providing its experience in the developing of conversation measures for the lesser kestrel.

“CERNÍCALO, a small bird of prey; a kind of hybrid sparrow-hawk with which boys often amuse themselves, making them come and take meat from the hand. Some have white nails and others have black nails and are nobler […]. In the Spanish tongue the name cernícalo from cerner meaning to hover is used, because the bird stays aloft without moving but stirring its wings and tail; hunters call this hovering.”

Such is the description of the kestrel by Sebastián de Covarrubias y Orozco in his dictionary "Treasure of the Spanish Language” in 1611, which is probably one of the earliest written records of these birds in Spanish with the possible exception of earlier works on falconry in which kestrels are hardly mentioned. +ZEPAURBAN

Continuando con el protocolo establecido en el marco del comité científico (acción F2) se está llevando a cabo la segunda vuelta para conocer el número de parejas reproductoras presentes en el ámbito de actuación en el proyecto. Esta segunda visita se hace coincidiendo con la presencia de pollos en los nidos. +ZEPAURBAN

Las jornadas se celebraron el día 16 de junio de 2016 en el campus de Badajoz y han sido organizadas por la Universidad de Extremadura en colaboración con con el Centro Tecnológico Agroalimentario Extremadura (CTAEX), la Secretaría General de Ciencia y Tecnología y la Dirección General de Acción Exterior de la Junta de Extremadura, la Enterprise European Network (EEN) de FUNDECYT/Parque Científico y Tecnológico y Extremadura Avante.

El objetivo de la presentación del proyecto LIFE-ZEPAURBAN es ayudar a quienes están pensando en presentar un proyecto LIFE en la convocatoria 2017, basándonos en nuestra experiencia en la preparación del LIFE-ZEPAURBAN. +ZEPAURBAN

Todos los proyectos LIFE cuentan con el apoyo de un equipo externo designado por la Comisión europea para el seguimiento del proyecto. Las principales funciones del equipo externo son: asesorar y apoyar a la Comisión en el seguimiento y la evaluación y de las actividades de los proyectos, y mantener un contacto regular con los beneficiarios asesorándoles de forma más directa sobre las dudas o dificultadas que puedan surgir en el desarrollo de los proyectos.

La persona del equipo externo designado para el seguimiento y apoyo del proyecto LIFE-ZEPAURBAN es Dolores Hedo quien ha realizado una primera visita para conocer de primera mano el proyecto y sus socios. La reunión ha tenido lugar en la Consejería de Medio Ambiente y Rural, Políticas Agrarias y Territorio de Mérida y a la misma han asistido representantes de los ocho socios participantes en el proyecto: Dirección General de Turismo, Dirección General de Bibliotecas, Museos y Patrimonio Cultural, INTROMAC, DEMA, Asociación Terra Naturalis, Laruinagrafica S.L. y Prefabricados Extremadura 2002 S.L. así como la Dirección General de Medio Ambiente como socia coordinadora del LIFE. #ZEPAURBAN

La Consejería de Economía e Infraestructuras de la Junta de Extremadura ha organizado el Festival de las Aves “Ciudad de Cáceres” celebrado dentro de la Ciudad Monumental de Cáceres, una de las ZEPA urbanas declaradas en Extremadura. Entre las actividades del Festival de las Aves destaca la celebración de las Jornadas “ZEPA urbanas: conservación y turismo”, que en su quinta edición ha dado un protagonismo especial al proyecto LIFE-ZEPAURBAN. Durante las jornadas tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer, gracias a la participación de Giuseppe Giglio venido de Italia especialmente pata participar en el Festival, el proyecto LIFE “Un Falco per Amico” que tiene múltiples sinergias con el LIFE-ZEPAURBAN. Destacó la exposición de Olimpia Oriol Ibarra y Máximo Sánchez Cobo sobre los trabajos para la recuperación del cernícalo primilla en la finca Casillas-Millarón en la Zona de Interés Regional Sierra de San Pedro. #ZEPAURBAN >> Leer más
