Milvus Group Association organized in 2014-2016 an annual ringing camp for studying the migration dynamics of passerine species that cross through the Chituc sandbank. In the first three years of the camp, 37193 individuals of 127 species were caught, the most abundant species being: Red-Breasted Flycatcher (4442 individuals), Robin (3729 individuals), Blue Tit (3013 individuals), Red-backed Shrike (2477 individuals) and Willow Warbler (2371 individuals).

Concrete parapets, roads without eco-ducts or underground passages, railways, fenced fields. All of these represent obstacles for wild animals that roam hundreds of kilometres in search of food, partners, wintering places, and so on.

The construction of motorways without special structures to allow the movement of large carnivores is a major risk factor for these species, but also for the safety of traffic participants. We want green infrastructure measures and we act through the TRANSGREEN project.
