Shiny and precious like the bee-eater.
Bee-eaters used to be extremely rare and are therefore still strictly protected in the area around Lake Neusiedl. The protection has been quite successful tough. More and more bee-eaters can be seen at sandy embankments where they breed, or when they fly over the vineyards hunting for insects. Organic vineyards with their rich food supply are therefore very important for the recovery of the bee-eaters.
