17th AUGUST – 6th OCTOBER 2017

The association BIOM has reported on the successful ringing of no less than 2.860 birds from 47 species that their members performed with the help from 73 volunteers, a few enthusiastic visitors and in cooperation with Nature Park Učka by the pond of Rovozna in the  summer and early fall of 2016.

We spent great time in the company of finches and goldcrests, warblers, robins and many other flying beauties. We enjoyed watching griffon vultures and eagles in flight over us and were also honored by an unexpected visit of two black storks. So, come along and join us this Fall!

Did you know?

The griffon vulture feeding site

…that griffon vultures, endangered in Croatia, are often flying over Učka in search for food? Once they were nesting here, but today their northern-Adriatic population is decreasing and in order to help in their preservation, a feeding site was build in Učka Nature Park, popularly called 'griffon vulture restaurants'.

The „Two towers“ trail

…that in 2018 a trail named „Two towers“ was established, which connects the town tower in Lovran with the Vojak tower on Učka? The trail goes through the existing hiking trail, and alongside there are educational boards that inform visitors on the flora and fauna of Učka.

The Roman cheese

…that it is traditional on Učka to produce the „molded“ sheep cheese of distinctive taste since the Roman Empire time? Its production was standardized due to its use in the nutrition of the Roman legions, while today's cheese made on Učka doesn't differ much from its antique ancestor.

Slavic mythology

…that the Mošćenička Draga's canyon used to be the scenery of sacred beliefs for the first Slavic settlers on the Kvarner area? The local toponyms like Perun, Babin grob and Voloski kuk witness about the old Slavic cult of Perun.
