  • Description

    Hovering above the reeds of Austria's Neusiedler Lake helicopters of the Federal Army and Ministry of the Interior are helping zoologists who are trying to discover the breeding places of the Large White Herons, also known as Large Egrets, in this vast sea of reeds.

    Up to now it has been impossible to ascertain this and the helicopters can solve the problem. They make it possible to find a colony of herons and the scientists then install their observations posts in the close vicinity of the breeding places. Otto Koenig, a distinguished expert on bird behaviour hopes to gain important scientific information. Never has it been possible to observe these birds from such close range. It has already been found that the Neusiedler Lake accommodates Europe's biggest colony of Large White Herons.
