"Extremely rich flora and fauna of the lake Žuvintas and its surroundings, with no other example in Lithuania, is worth keeping."

Prof. Tadas IVANAUSKAS

Eastern and Northern Lithuania are highly attractive areas for many iconic birds of the boreal region. Labanoras National Park covers a vast area with a predomination of Western Taiga forests, numerous lakes, various types of bogs, and natural meadows. This is an ideal environment for Capercailie and other grouse, along with some wodpecker and owl species. The next destination is Birzai forest; also well known among birders as the paradise of owls and woodpeckers. Both sites are also rich with mammal fauna. Thus, early spring is one of the best seasons to visit Labanoras National Park, Birzai Forest and their surroundings, to meet and experience wild Lithuanian nature at its best.

Baltoji Vokė lies in the Šalčininkai region of south-east Lithuania and is located between the Rivers Neris and Merkys, about 28 km south of the capital and only a little more from the Belorussian border. On almost all sides, the site is surrounded by extensive pine forests, namely Rūdninkų Giria to the south and east and Ropėjos Miškas to the north, while through the centre of the area flows the River Vokė, a tributary of the Neris. This river feeds both Lake Papis and the fish pools. Baltoji Vokė itself is characterised by a wealth of different habitats. Sitting almost as a centrepiece is the large shallow Lake Papis, with its wide fringe of reedbeds, peaty shallows and marshy islands. The lake hosts many different species, but amongst the most important are the breeding Bitterns and terns and large numbers of migratory wildfowl.

The importance of the Nemunas delta for migrating waterfowl, waders and other birds has long been known. Its location on the narrowest point of the Baltic Flyway makes it an equally exclusive place for birds and birders. Each year millions of birds pass along the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea shorelines towards breeding grounds in Scandinavia and Russia. The flooded meadows of the Nemunas delta create unrivaled conditions for millions of ducks, geese and waders to stop and rest at the halfway point to the breeding sites in the North. On the western shore of the Curonian Lagoon there is a 100km long and up to up to 3km wide arm of sandy dunes called the Curonian Spit. This natural phenomenon is the only place in the Baltic states where birds, especially passerines and rapotors, use as a highway and the numbers passing through on the season’s peak days surpass one million. The Baltic Sea’s coastal waters are an important stopover and wintering area for seabirds; espacially seaducks and divers. This is why the Nemunas delta, the Curonian lagoon, the Baltic coast and the Curonian Spit are designated as protected areas for their unique importance to birds during migration, breeding, and wintering seasons.

Everybody knows Nida, Juodkrantė, and Preila. Many have been there, gazed at the wavering shapes of the land in the distance from the other side of the lagoon, asking themselves what is beyond, where the sky blends with the water, what land is it, and what the world looks like from there. Few know that there is Ventės Ragas. This is the place with the lonely lighthouse, built as if on the very edge of the world, and people, in whose eyes only water and sky are reflected, who ring birds so that they can observe their journey through the sky. Ventės Ragas is one of the best places in Europe to observe migrant birds. For this reason, ornithologists both from Lithuania and abroad meet here every year. However, it is worth crossing the lagoon not only because of the birds. This is a rare opportunity to experience true tranquillity, to see the remaining architecture of Little Lithuanian with your own eyes, to hear the language used by old local residents, and to admire the beauty of the nature, which you won’t find anywhere else. Here, you’ll be surprised to find the so-called “Little Venice”, where streets are rivers and where people greet each other when passing by in their boats and communicate sincerely and openly.
