About Biebrzański National Park
Biebrzańskie Marshes is a vast (about 60,000 ha) complex of peat bogs and floodplain meadows located in the northern part of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. The river valley has its origin in the vicinity of Dąbrowa Białostocka and Leipzig and the mouth of the Biebrza to Narew is around Wizna. Biebrza marshes are divided into 3 pools. The northern one is the smallest and narrow, bordering the Sztabin area with the central basin. It is much more extensive (40,000 ha) and diverse, but also hardly accessible.
271 species of birds were recorded in the Biebrza valley, of which over 180 nests more or less regularly. Aquatic Warbler is a unique species in the world - a small passerine bird inhabiting open marsh areas. There are about 3,000 here, which is almost 20% of the world population. Equally valuable and rare species in Europe's lesser grosbeak, snipe , Uszatek eared, white-winged tern, whose numbers exceed 15% of the national population.
