October was a busy month for celebrating internationally important days for birds. In the first week, we were celebrating the European Birdwatch Days by organizing birdwatching tours in the Skopje City Park and with the pupils from Goce Delchev primary school from Resen. This year was the 25th anniversary of the European Birdwatch days, which have been Europe’s most popular birdwatching platform to date.
In the second week from October however, we celebrated the World Migratory Bird Days with birdwatching tours in Skopje City Park and in Gevgelija with the pupils from Vlado Kantarziev. The participants learned the basic birdwatching principles and discussed the benefits and challenges of bird migration.
Approximately 60 participants took part in the tours and worked in direct contact with the bird team of MES. The organization of the birdwatching tours is part of MES’s effort to popularize this world trend to the pupils and public in Macedonia.
