An interesting way how to prove bird migration :-)

V minulosti lidé věřili, že ptáci odlétají na Měsíc nebo že se vlaštovky mění na zimu v myši, kukačky v krahujce a tak podobně. Na jaře 1822 se ale do Německa vrátil čáp se šípem v krku. Šíp vystopovali až do střední Afriky a byl to jeden z prvních důkazů, kam že to čápi vlastně na zimu odlétají.

And yet another comeback to the Czech Republic after centuries. Wild horses were introduced in a former Red Army military training area not far from where Skoda cars are produced. After some hesitation whether to choose Carpathian Hucul or Exmoor Pony the latter was brought from UK being more relative to original Central European horses. Let´s hope they can spread to other areas. Good luck ponies.
