Geocache Description:

SLO: Zaklad je dosegljiv tudi po kopnem (glej waypoints). Ampak najbolj zabaven je dostop po vodi. Zaklad sem postavil v spominu na CITO-dogodek River Clean up Canoe Tour, ki je potekalo 24.7.2017 na Ljubljanici.



ENG: The cache is also accessible from land (see waypoints), but it is more fun to do it from the river by canoe. I placed this cache in remembrance of my CITO event River Clean up Canoe Tour that took place on the Ljubljanica river at the end of June 2017. 





CITO River Clean Up Canoe Tour: Searching for cache and trash


Event logbook

Iskanje tega zaklada vas bo pripeljalo na "polotok", na katerem gnezdijo divje race. Ko sem bil zadnjič tam, je ena mama raca sedela na zakladu. Verjetno je okroglasto škatlico imela za jajco...




Zaklad je dosegljiv tudi z obale, ampak predlagam, da si raje izberite lep in topel dan in se opravite na racolov s čolnom. Ehm, oprostite, seveda sem hotel rečt "na GEOlov". Potem lahko (na en mah) "ubijete" še 4 druge zaklade, ker v bližini vas čaka lepo mini serijo Ljublanica I-IV.

 

Anas platyrhynchos




Mlakarica (znanstveno ime Anas platyrhynchos; tudi divja raca) je verjetno najbolj znana med vsemi racami na svetu in je prednik vseh udomačenih rac, ki jih goji človek. Tudi v Sloveniji je vse leto najštevilnejša med vsemi racami, pozimi pa se ji pridružijo še mlakarice iz visokega severa.

Voda je njihovo življenjsko okolje, ki jim predstavlja varnost in jim prinaša hrano, čeprav včasih zaidejo tudi na polje. Mlakarice ne plavajo pod vodo, pogosto pa se jih vidi, kako se s potopljenim prednjim delom telesa pasejo v plitvi vodi, kjer s kljunom dosežejo dno. Tako kot obvladajo vodno gladino po kateri plavajo, tudi dobro letijo, pogosto celo ponoči.

Prehrana mlakarice je v glavnem rastlinska, hrani pa se tudi z vodnimi živalmi, kot so paglavci žab, z žabami ter vodnimi žuželkami v vseh razvojnih fazah.

Med veslanjem po Ljubljanici boste videli številne race, mogoče tudi želve, nutrije ali celo ogroženo vidro.

 

 




ENGLISH cache description:


This cache will take you to a place where wild ducks like to rest and nest. Last time I was there a female duck was sitting directly on the small roundish cache box. She must have mistaken it for an egg...


The cache is also accessible from the river bank. But I advise you to rather wait for a warm and sunny day and “attack” the duck island by boat or canoe. Then you can also go for the 4 other caches of the nice miniseries Ljubljanica I-IV for which you definitely need a boat.

 

Anas platyrhynchos




The mallard or wild duck (Anas platyrhynchos) is probably the most common and well-know among all the duck species.

Mallards eat water plants and small animals, and are social animals preferring to congregate in groups or flocks of varying sizes. This species is the main ancestor of most breeds of domesticated ducks.

A highly adaptable species, the mallard is tolerant of most habitat changes and as such has become a very successful example of urban wildlife in much of its range.


You will see lots of these ducks when you paddle on the Ljubljanica river. If you are lucky you might also be able to observe some turtles, river rats (nutria / coypu) or even the highly endangered European river otter.
