Lake Tisza is a large reservoir on the Tisza river. Two-thirds of the lake, whose total area is 127 square kilometers, has been designated to fall under the Ramsar Convention because of its notably significant wetland habitats. The lake has a special flora, here you can see Europe’s largest Yellow Floating Heart and Water Chestnut fields and large part of the lake is covered by White Water Lily. Tisza Lake is an ideal habitat for herons. You can find Grey Heron, Purple Heron, Little Egret, Great Egret, Squacco Heron and Little Bittern here. Also Eurasian Spoonbill, lots of Great Cormorant and Common Tern can be also observed at Tisza Lake. In the gallery forests of the reservoir it is possible to see Black Stork. Black Kite, Saker Falcon and Eurasian Hobby can also appear. In 2005 a Water Walk and Nature Trail, was created in the Poroszló Basin (See the map and link below), where you can walk 1,500 m of water walkway. The other area shown on the map is the area I explored near the village of Tiszagyenda.
The villages of Poroszló and Tiszagyenda are easy to reach by car.
