On Friday, 21/03/2014 a lecture on "Measures for Sustainable Habitat of Great Bustard" was held in Mokrin.

Lecturers were Tivadar Kontos, manager of the landowner associations of hunters from Túrkeve and Széll Antal, head of the rangers service of the National Park KörösMaros from Hungary. The lecture was attended by representatives of the Provincial Institute for Nature Protection, Provincial Secretariat for Urban Planning, Construction and Environmental protection and the Municipality of Kikinda, as well as representatives of hunting organizations from Mokrin, Jazovo, Banatsko Aranđelovo and Novi Kneževac and representatives of the Association for the Protection of Great Bustard, the Society for the Protection and bird Study association of Serbia and  Association of Naturalists Riparia.

In the lecture there was discussion about how to hunt in areas that are habitats of great bustard, and most discued topic was ways of dealing with predators, foxes, jackals, wild boars and gray crow. Colleagues from Hungary transferred to us their experiences from the field, tips and ideas.

The second part of the lecture was held as a field visit of the Special Nature Reserve "Pastures of great bustard" and there was a several hours of discussion on measures to protect great bustard and the impact of threatening factors. The greater part of the reserve was visited, however, although the day before Bustard has been seen and photographed in the Mokrin area, strong wind did not allow to locate a single individual that day.

After lunch in a hunting lodge, Special Nature Reserve "Slano Kopovo" was visited.

The next day, APGB members and guests from Hungary went to the field at dawn. Luckily there was no wind and from the visitor center was observed a male in struts, incomplete but slowly preparing for the upcoming season. Because of the "contra" light it was not possible to make a high-quality photograph.

The tour continued on the eastern side of the reserve and in the Sajan and Jazovo part of the reserve so that the male would not be harassed.

An important finding is the two individuals marsh owls, several active ground squirrel burrow and read of five color rings on marked Shovelers.

Around 11 o'clock  guest from the Hungary headed home with the promise that they will come back soon.
