Feathered airport staff
Falconers have been working at the Prague airport for 40 years. Predators protect airport airspace from other birds. At the station, breeders tend to 13 birds, including three eagles, falcons, buzzards, hawks and sparrows. The protection of the airport territory is, in fact, a round-the-clock work, the shift of which unfolds from dawn to dusk. In the summer, this usually means from five in the morning to nine in the evening. Birds don’t fly in the dark.
In the Official Instructions, falconers are required to drive around the airport and monitor the movement of birds. The working vehicles are adapted to transport predators, which are released only when mining is taking place in the area.
