Lake Akzibir

A shallow (0.5-1.2 m) lake with vast reedbeds on its western side in the Khachmas coastal lowland. It is leased by the Hunters' Society of Azerbaijan. The lake area varies from 1,600 to 7,000 ha depending on irrigation and rainfall.
Among breeding species are large colonies of herons (including Botaurus stellaris, Ixobrychus minutus and Ardea purpurea). Porzana parva and Porphyrio porphyrio also breed. The site is especially important for the autumn migration of waterbirds, more than 70,000-80,000 pass each year, with about 5,000 wildfowl wintering (Anas platyrhynchos, A. clypeata, A. crecca, A. querquedula, A. strepera, Aythya fuligula, Netta rufina), and up to 5,000 Fulica atra. Species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Marmaronetta angustirostris (very rare passage visitor), Aythya nyroca (two estimates: 5+ breeding pairs; several hundreds breeding).
Passage;-Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus), White-headed Duck (Oxyura leucocephala), Eurasian Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia), Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus crispus), Pygmy Cormorant (Phalacrocorax pygmeus), Black-winged Stilt (Himantopus himantopus), Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta), Marsh Sandpiper (Tringa stagnatilis), Terek Sandpiper (Xenus cinereus), Collared Pratincole (Glareola pratincola) Birdlife International.
