Description

The area has a nice mixture of species. In winter most interesting is the open water in the north, in spring the best is the reserve itself. In the winter regularly some nice ducks are present like SmewGoosanderRed-crested Pochard. In spring most normal birds of reedbeds are present in the reserve with Sedge WarblerReed WarblerBearded Tit sometimes and depending on the year and some luck Great Bittern.
