If you want to visit Jezero Most, I recommend in winter. Thousands of birds fly to this large lake to spend the winter. Gadwall, Common Pochard, Tufted Duck, Goosander, Great Crested Grebe, Yellow-legged Gull, Caspian Gull and Common Gull are common here. Less common birds you can come across here are Greater Scaup, Velvet Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Slavonian Grebe (Horned Grebe) and Lesser Black-backed Gull. Water Pipit are often found here on bare mudflats. In the bushes around the lake you can see birds like Wren and Black Redstart. In the reeds you can come across Bearded Tit



Parking is easy. It is possible to park right by the lake. Click on the P in the map to get directions to the parking. Common Pochard and Tufted Duck can be seen from the parking lot. The access road to the parking lot and the road around the lake are paved. You can take a circular route (8,5 km), or you can go just a short distance and then come back. You can also visit the dump, which is a short distance away, where you can observe Black-headed Gull, Caspian Gull, Common Gull and Herring Gull
