A new generation of pelicans is already populating the "Srebarna" reserve in northeastern Bulgaria.

Over 70 pelican couples returned in the spring to their home - the "Srebarna" lake.

Naturalists say it is still difficult to determine the exact number of the new pelicans because the parents hide their young offspring carefully.

The colony is being monitored on a daily basis to prevent last year's wild hogs' attacks.

The refuge is also the home of other protected birds such as rare species of swans, herons, geese, and others.
