"Heaven for birdwatchers and naturalists" Polesie by cheekykev
Polesie Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 3 photos
The Polesie National Park lies in central Poland near its eastern border. The park lies in the Lublin Voivodeship. It was established in 1990 and covers an area of 4,813 ha.
The national park contains a number of unique peatbogs, along with extensive forests and a number of lakes. As a result, it contains a unique mixture of flora and fauna.
Officially speaking the Park area is a tundra or forest / tundra habitat, represetning the south-western limit of this habitat type in Europe.
The Park contains a wide variety of fauna - something really for everyone, from the person out for a glimpse of the reclusive moose, to the birdwatcher in search of the magnificent crane.
A list of fauna to be found is tasty indeed (although there is no suggestion here that you ought to be hunting it!) and includes the following gems; (fish) crucian carp, loach,thunderfish, bitterling, lake minnow; (amphibians)mud turtle;
(birds) golden eagle, sea eagle, green sandpiper, black stork; (mammals) northern birch mouse, ermine, river otter, elk, wolf.
Of course you won't find all of these in a single trip to the park - just as well, as it would be like having five bars of chocolate at one sitting - the best thing to do is to aim for one or two gems and savour them.
