Spring at Pomorie Lagoon

Mar 29, 2022
The long-awaited astronomical spring came on March 20 this year. However, the spring in the Pomorie Lagoon coincided with the meteorological one and began in full force on March 25, when the first spring migrants began to arrive. These are species of birds that take the long journey north every spring to carry out another, hopefully successful, nesting season.

During this trip, they use wetlands, such as Pomorie Lake, as places to rest and recharge. This is extremely important for these species because without this opportunity, provided by wetlands along the long migration route, they would not be able to survive physically and reach their final destinations.

In the photos below you can see some of the species registered in Pomorie Lake during the last monitoring conducted by our experts. Among these were the first larger groups of the flagship breeding species of the lagoon – Avocet, Black-winged stilt and Sandwich tern. Flocks of hundreds of White storks complemented the migration image.
