Poland 2: Biebrza marshes

Most of the Biebrza marshes was still covered with ice in mid-april, and wintering birds were still present in large numbers. Elk and deer are used to winterly conditions, but the migratory birds seemed less happy with snow and ice.

Biebrza is one of the few places on the European
continent where we can find Elk (Alces alces)  - elg
Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus) - rådyr

White-fronted Geese (Anser albifrons) were still present in large numbers - tundragås
Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus) - stjertmeis
Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius) - nøtteskrike
Male Marsh Harrier (Cirkus aeruginosus) searching for food in ice-covered reed beds - sivhauk hann
White Wagtail (Motacilla alba) on the ice - linerle
Lesser Ringed Plower (Charadrius dubius) - dverglo

The Stork (Ciconia ciconia) seemed a bit depressed over the snow-covered fields - stork

Not much to eat here
