During migration and winter the water bodies can host lots of ducks if they have not been flushed by fishermen or hunters, among which several dozens of Common Pochard and Tufted Duck and several hundreds of Eurasian Coot . A rarity such as the Velvet Scoter or Greater Scaup is always possible in winter. Still in winter but above all during October-November and March the wet grassland is a very good spot for Common Snipe and Jack Snipe.
In summer typical breeders include Common Tern and Great Crested Grebe on the lake, Red-backed Shrike in the bushes or Meadow Pipit in the grassland.
In late summer and early autumn when water level drops the south-western water body can be very good for waders particularly Wood Sandpiper or for a Black Stork stopover. In spring when water level is higher, Black Tern , Whiskered Tern or Little Gull are regularly seen foraging over water.
You can park in the village or near the fence indicating the quarry entry. The area is best explored by walking.
