The new roof has got a kind of tile specially designed to favor the breeding of this bird, a migratory species that nests in holes of old buildings and rocky slopes.

 

 

In last March the restoration and refurbishment works of the farmhouse of Alguaire were finished. There is an important Lesser Kestrel colony (Falco naumanni) is breeding in this farmhouse. In 2013 the birds were already nesting on a roof in poor condition. This winter we could carry out the restoration works, incorporando 26 tiles specially designed to favour the breeding of this species.

This action is included in the objectives of the stewardship agreement that Trenca signed last October with the farm owner, located in the  municipality of Alguaire (El Segrià regional district, Lleida). Land stewardship is a strategy of the civil society for the conservation of natural, cultural and landscape values. Through a stewardship agreement a voluntary pact is done between a land stewardship entity and a land owner, in order to maintain or recover the natural or cultural heritage of the farms under the agreement.
