Naturpark Fanes-Sennes-Prags
Autonomous Province of Bozen

The Nature Park Fanes-Sennes-Prags has an area of about 256 km² and lies between the Garda valley, the Puster valley, the Höhlenstein valley and the political border between South Tyrol and the province of Belluno in Italy. The landscape of this nature park has been moulded primarily on sedimentary rocks such as chalk and dolomite. It contains some of the best karst scenery of the Dolomites. The Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park encompasses large areas of mowed mountain meadows and grazed pastures.

2003

The Golden Eagle monitoring in he Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park was done by Antonio Borgo. He could record 6 Breeding pairs of which two successfully raised young eagles. One pair managed to raise two youngs therefore the overall success rate was 0.5 young per pair.

2004

Fieldwork was again coried out by Antonio Borgo, the overall coordination of the project lay with Renato Sascor. Adding two Pairs of Golden Eagles nesting in the direct vicinity of the nature park a total of 8 pairs was recorded in 2004. Four of the six pairs breeding within the parks borders successfully raised a young this year. The breeding success was therefore 0.67 fledglings per pair, which is slightly higher than in 2003. A total of 38 eyries has been documented so far, most of them were found at altitudes between 1,800 und 2,100 m (the lowest at 1,600 m, the highest at 2,100 m).

2005

Only one of the 6 pairs breeding within the parks boundaries successfully raised a young in 2005. The breeding success was therefore only 0.17 fledglings per pair.
