Effort for little owl

After urban trees in Oberhohenried had already undergone a "rejuvenation cure" two weeks previously had been subjected, found themselves now in Unterhohenried on invitation of city councillor Sven Schnos likewise numerous aids to a cut course. Fruit trees that are left to their own devices for too long become senile and eventually collapse, as Toni Schenk from Hassfurt, who cares for many fruit trees every year and thus ensures their long-term survival, reported.
Fruit trees are not only a cultural asset and visual element of the landscape, but also a habitat for many animals, explained biologist Dietmar Will from the city administration. Especially flower-visiting insects would benefit, as would many bird species.
The volunteer arborists are particularly interested in one bird species: the little owl. After this small owl species became extinct in the district of Hassberge decades ago, the populations in some neighboring districts have recovered thanks to enormous efforts, so that there is justified hope that this species will also regain a foothold in the district of Hassberge.
After voluntary and full-time nature conservationists have already installed nesting tubes in several places in the district as part of a joint Little Owl project, a nesting aid has now also been installed in Unterhohenried without further ado. The reintroduction would be a great reward for the fruit tree pruning campaigns that the Agenda Group with its spokesman Gunther Bald has been undertaking for many years.
