This reserve is great for raptors, passerines and waders, all year round.
The Veliko Blato reserve, 15 minutes from Pag Town, has a length of about 2 km and an average width of 1.2 km. It forms a shelter for a wide variety of marsh birds, especially during the nesting, migration and hibernation period. The northern part of the reserve is surrounded by reeds and some varieties of sedges. The edge of the lake is covered with meadows which are sometimes flooded in spring and fall. The southern part of the reserve is surrounded by karst terrain. Among the birds you can see here are Short-toed Snake Eagle, Lesser Kestrel, Black Kite, Tawny Pipit, Northern Wheatear, Hoopoe, Great Egret, Little Bittern, European Honey-buzzard and Rock Partridge.
Turn off the main road between Pag and Povljana, park at the side of the road and look. There is a walk to an elevated hide overlooking the lake and reedbed.
