[Trophic activity of Vulpes vulpes in a wetland: which effects on the reproductive biology of Ardea purpurea?]
[In an Ardea purpurea colony regularly monitored from 2004 to 2018, some predatory events of Vulpes vulpes have been observed since 2010. This was followed by a reduction in the reproductive success and in the number of breeding pairs. Some herons likely abandoned their nests in the reed bed and moved to nesting on trees. The Authors discuss the possibility that these events were a consequence of the predatory activity of the red fox.]
