Inspired by Dmitri's Entry about chestnuts as well as a recent news article. I thought we could use some more environmental stuff.

smiley - applause Indeed we should! Hurrah for Konrad Lorenz and the environmentalists. smiley - biggrin

Quick read-through:

Add a footnote to explain what the 'Iron Curtain' is. (And capitalise it.) Trust me: the kids will ask.

>>Konrad Lorenz, behaviour scientist and nobel prize winner<<

Change to 'Konrad Lorenz, animal behaviour scientist and Nobel laureate.'

>>to vacate the floodplain forest<<

'to clear the floodplain forest'

>>foreign animals and plants<<

You should say 'invasive animal and plant species'

There are two pictures of the Danube already loaded. One is a map, the other is an old sketch. Let me know if we should look for more or if you could take one yourself.

Thanks! I made the changes. smiley - smiley

I do actually have ONE picture of the national park. It's probably not great but better than what we already have here.

Thank you for the story of this national park - a 'diverse ecosystem' indeed smiley - ok

A couple of bits I wasn't clear about:

"Other areas are removed by the river." - areas of gravel and sand?

"this was a requirement of a convention signed between all the nations at the Danube" - 'this' being the building of weirs and locks as well as the dam?

"Bordering the national park in the south is the archeological park ." - could you say a few more words about the archaeological park, or perhaps delete the sentence? - the previous sentence would make a strong ending to the Entry.

smiley - ok

I've had a read through and enjoyed it, I've nothing more to add at this point. I can see what Sasha's saying that the current penultimate sentence would make a strong conclusion, but I would prefer that the sentence about the archaeological park be moved into a previous sentence rather than deleted. What the archaeological park is should be explained.

Good work, Tav. Although my husband has done the cycle routes along the Danube with his friends, (a very popular activity among the middle-aged and retirees as, by the very nature of its following the course of a river, is a fairly flat ride) they didn't go past Vienna, so I hadn't heard about this place.

The subeditor will have to work on the prepositions, but it is clear what is meant.

I was reminded of a book which I heard serialised on the BBC some time ago. It is set in about 1905, and tells the tale of two men who row along the Danube, all the way "from the Black Forest to the Black Sea". Not entirely relevant to your story but it gives a good picture of the geography of the area:

Thank you!

There is a cycle route going all the way along the Danube, from the spring to the black sea. Itis part of an even longer route starting at the coast of France.

Thanks for the link!
