First Marbled duck breeding pairs among birds coming from the restocking program

Concrete conservation actions to reshape portions of Pantano Longarini carried out during summer 2021 continue showing very positive results, in this case during the breeding season 2022. At least 4 pairs of Marbled duck entirely formed by specimens released in the area in the context of project’s restocking program have successfully bred in the area; among these pairs, at least 2 pairs have bred and grown up juveniles withing the areas re-shaped and improved for the purpose with the creation of suitable niches for the species to breed. A twofold success which has been further enriched by the circumstance that number of juveniles born and fledged has been particularly high.
