Description

In the this wet area you can see Eurasian Curlew and Green Sandpiper. The bare soil that arises in places where the water retreats, is ideal for making a nest for Northern Lapwing. In recent years, shrubs have been planted. These provide breeding grounds for European Stonechat and Yellowhammer.
