20 Years of EuroBirdwatch!

Last year, the largest annual event of the European BirdLife partners, the EuroBirdwatch, has celebrated its 20th anniversary! Besides offering activities for the public all around Europe, the event raises awareness for the fascinating bird migration and how important it is to protect bird habitats, breeding areas, stopover sites and flyways.
