Pigeon loft maintenance to favor bird of prey populations
EDPR has been collaborating since 2012 with the Castilla La Mancha Communities Council in the maintenance of pigeon lofts with the purpose of improving the supply of food for large birds of prey in certain areas of the province of Albacete (Spain).
Improving the conditions of these pigeon lofts helps achieve a stable population of pigeons in the area and therefore a continuous supply of food for the bird of prey population.
The works, which were financed by EDPR with a total of 15,000€, began in 2012 with a number of repair tasks such as fixing doors, fence installation, nest construction, retiling of the roof as well as cleaning of feeders and replacement of water tanks.
Likewise, EDPR has been in charge since 2012 of the maintenance of the Liétor pigeon loft in Albacete, contributing 2,580€ a year for cleaning and fumigation tasks and medicated feed supply that is specifically prepared for pigeons.
