Kajabachmündung

Lower Austria  >  Austria

Located at the mouth of the Kajabach. A perfect view on the River Thaya in the National Park Thayatal and home to the elusive Black Stork.

Added by Christoph Milek

Description

Quiet area of a narrow floodplain forest. Walk down the river valley of the Thaya at the Austrian-Czech border. Slowly floating water invites the Common Kingfisher or the Black Stork to fish. Best chances in the morning hours. With some luck you may spot or hear a Savi's Warbler. Other birds you can see are Grey Wagtail and White-throated Dipper.
