Straznice Region


Have you ever heard of Natura2000? Do you know what it is? Natura2000 is a network of special protected areas designated for the conservation of biological diversity in the European Union. The network consists of 2 kinds of protected areas: Special Protection Areas (SPAs) – supporting the conservation of rare and vulnerable birds and Sites of Community Importance (SCIs) – high quality nature conservation sites for particular species of plants and animals, but also their natural habitats.

One of the “bird areas” (Site CZ0621025 – Bzenecka Doubrava – Straznicke Pomoravi) can be found west of Sudomerice. Its aim is to secure favourable living conditions for endangered species of birds which live in this area. The flood-plain forests and meadows along the Morava River are a favourite nesting place of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia), the Western (sometimes known as Eurasian) Marsh-harrier (Circus aeruginosus), and the Middle Spotted Woodpecker (Denrocopos medius). The orchards and gardens provide home for the Syrian Woodpecker (Dendrocopos syriacus) and the pine forests of the Bzenecka Doubrava still offer safe haven to the European Nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus) and the Woodlark (Lullula arborea).
