The first in-person meeting of the project partners after 2 years of restrictions has been conducted on the 23rd of November in the Hungarian city of Tata. The topics we discussed were focused on the project action status, next steps, and fruitful discussions between the project partners about the best practices of using various types of flight diverters. We are very glad that we could meet personally after a long period of time. Team form BSPB and EDG West was also present at the meeting.

The event was organized with the cooperation of the project partner – energy transmission company MAVIR – Az energia irányítója, and on the 24 of November, the 13th MAVIR Bird Conservation Conference with a focus on the conservation of migratory birds took place. The LIFE Danube Free Sky project was presented by various project partners, alongside many interesting presentations about other LIFE and nonLIFE projects and initiatives.

The program was enriched by knowledge sharing and demonstration of the installation of the FireFly bird diverter via drone by FiiHaa Engineering s.r.o., Slovakia.
