Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve

Biarezinski nature reserve was founded on January 30, 1925. The basis for it were the materials of the expedition led by A. V. Fediushin. The territory of the reserve, which is 1.200 square kilometers, is a part of the Biarezina, the Dnieper's tributary, basin, and partially of the river Esa basin, which is a tributary of the Ula that runs to the Zakhodnjaja Dzvina. Thus, the reserve is situated at the watershed between the basins of the Baltic and the Black seas.
Birds. All in all there are 230 species of 18 orders. Among them 179 nest, 31 are the birds of passage, 14 appear sporadically and 6 stay for winter. Abundant food explains the variety of species and the number of predators. In spring and summer thousands of migrants find an ideal place for rest and feeding near the Biarezina.
Key Species;- Breeding Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix), Black Stork (Ciconia nigra), Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), Greater Spotted Eagle (Aquila clanga), Common Crane (Grus grus), Great Snipe (Gallinago media) pictured, Black Tern (Chlidonias niger), European Roller (Coracias garrulus).
