Special Birds: Common Tern
Common Tern Sterna hirundo is locally common in the region. In fact it is the most common sterna species over much of Eastern Europe, nesting in small colonies on the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Sea coastlines and inland by lakes, fishponds and on rivers with gravel islets.
