The bison summer

2 July 2015

It seems that July is going to be very hot. The bison are laying on sand in the sun. The ladies, as usual, enjoy the sunbathing. The lazy atmosphere, with flies buzzing in the hot air, is interrupted only by the sounds of tractor’s engine, the visitors or… presence of the photographer J.

For the free-ranging bison, summer means the time of giving birth. The pregnant female leaves her group, and comes back a few days after, with the new-born. The first few weeks together are very important for the female and her child: this is the time of bonding, when the calf learns to recognize its mother’s scent and voice.

Some time ago, we were writing about adventures of a wolf called Lucky on his journey in search for… luck :) . You can see on the map how long was his trip: from Drawsko Forest to Bydgoszcz Forest, covering a straight-line distance of about 150 km. He crossed many obstacles: villages, roads, railways, open agricultural areas with no cover. He finally made it to Bydgoszcz Forest, where he found happiness, in his case… a she-wolf. Now, the wolves explore the area together. We will see if they will have pups :) .
