Good news has arrived from nearly all regions from Hungary! Record number of Red-footed Falcons commenced their breeding, with moth clutches being 4 egg strong, only a handful of nests contain 3 or 2 eggs. The Vásárhelyi Plains area set a new standard in breeding density, as more than 120 pairs are currently in the early stages of breeding in a mere 12 000 ha puszta area, a number that doubles that of previous years.
