The previous visits coincided with the winter conditions - the presence of snow cover and subzero temperature. These circumstances gave the opportunity to carry out route records of mammals by the signs of their activity, to create a list of wintering birds (25 species), and to carry out experimental feeding with grain mixes.
This time, we focused on the study of the seasonal aspects of the formation of the bird populations. We saw some spring migrants: northern wheatear, white wagtail, Eurasian hoopoe, chiffchaff, tree pipit, black redstart, a single sand martin, and a great tit was observed beginning building nests. The micromammals inventarization using pit-fall traps was started.
Spring awoke a diverse and poorly studied world of invertebrates - snails, spiders, and insects. Several species of butterflies, beetles, and ants were captured by the camera lenses. The next stage will be tne interesting and hard work on determination of the quantitative characteristics and the sozological status of all of the zoocenose components.
