Three species of Bush-crickets (Orthoptera) of conservation value or poorly known were found in the Eurasian Eagle Owl food in southeastern Bulgaria. Their localities are new country records and two of them cover Natura 2000 SCI zones. The repeated predation on Bradyporus macrogaster in UTM square MG99 confirms the potential of this area for a new Natura 2000 site.
