Destinations: Lake Hasarlac - Romania

This shallow lake in eastern Romania, in Dobrudja, lies right by road 22a near Hirsova. It is smaller than most of the coastal lagoons and so can be easily scanned. It can be viewed from the roadside or from a tracks on adjacent hillsides and low sandy cliffs. From spring to autumn Ruddy Shelducks are likely here along with many of the other wetland birds one would expect in this eastern Romania - Pygmy Cormorant, Little Bittern, Glossy Ibis, Purple Heron, etc.
