To Biebrza, Poland


Poland, 19 May.

After the Bialystok fish ponds, we arrive in Woznawies village, on the edge of the big Biebrza national park.

The Biebrza marshes have escaped from a plan to damage them by having a highway through them.

In Wosnawies, house martin and barn swallow nests. Black redstart.

Swifts flying around.

Tree frog sounds.

Polish Society for the Protection of Birds (OTOP) has opened an office in Cracow and started a 4-year monitoring and conservation program of the most precious birds in the Polish part of the Carpathian Mountains. The project will help us learn about location and ways of protection of Golden Eagle, Lesser Spotted Eagle, White-backed Woodpecker, Three-toed Woodpecker and alpine species like Alpine Accentor and Wallcreeper, in Poland breeding only in the Carpathians: here.
