Preparation of nectar-bearing plots and disturbance of grass turf

During April, we set up nectar-breeding plots at Dívčí Hrady and around Asuan. Among other plants, species serving as food plants for caterpillars of some target butterfly species (eg crepuscular burnet or silver-studded blue) will also be sown. Furthermore, turf was disturbed in places potentially suitable for the reproduction of rock grayling, whose eggs and caterpillars require warmed and loose fescue lawns. We wold not be able to handle with the heavily connected turf without the help of heavy equipment.
