Greylag goose for the first time in history nested at the Bird Island at Orava Dam in Námestovo.
Ornithologists opined that it is a rarity in the Orava environment of mountain character.
“Graylag gooses have nested in Slovakia for a long time but in most cases, these are lowland areas, at Záhorie, Podunajská nížina or at eastern Slovakia,” said Miroslav Demko, director of Slovak Ornithologist Society (SOS)/Birdlife, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
“This is the first-ever nesting in such mountain environment – in a highly-located locality in the Carpathians,” he added, as quoted by TASR.
