In the county in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, ornithologists are currently observing typical bird species in winter and the first bird species to come to the area in spring. The storks are still nesting in the area in Africa, in Warmia and Mazury they are expected in mid-March.
Sebastian Menderski of the Polish Association for Bird Protection (PTOP) told PAP that “creeping spring” is now observed in Warmian-Masurian nature.
“There are indeed the first signs of spring that are shy, but not strong, brutal, and violent. It’s such a creeping spring,” – Mendersky said.
Among the usual species for wintering, ornithologists note wax wings, flocks of lilies and bulls in the area. “The winter birds in our region have not yet started their journey north, perhaps because Central Russia freezes from 30 to 50 degrees Celsius,” Mendersky said.
Ornithologists are already observing the first bird species to settle in the area during their travels from Western Europe to Siberia. “Geese are such a species that graze here,” Mendersky said.
In the county the Warmian-Masurian region includes graves, pavilions and starlings. The jacks that have already been paired have succeeded in getting the hand to “rank” themselves the most. “The cranes have already entered the breeding season, and we can expect to lay eggs soon,” – an ornithologist admitted in an interview with PAP. The number of cranes in the region is increasing, and social media is teeming with images of these gracious birds caught in meadows, swamps and remote areas. Local nature lovers compete in management as Klangors are heard.
In the near future in the province. The arrival of storks cannot be expected in the Farmin-Masurian district. Those who nest in Warmia and Masuria – as their transmitters indicate – are still in Africa, in Egypt. “The storks will likely arrive in mid-March. If an individual appears early, it will be a ‘cheater’ who waited for winter in Greece or Romania, not in Africa. It may also happen that there are storks that have waited for the winter at farmers’ farms” – Mendesky said.
The first signs of spring can also be seen in the world of plants – in sunny gardens there are snowdrops, saffron and the first tulips sprouted. There are rules for willow. (PAP)
