Geocache Description:



Бургас е един от малкото европейски градове, заобиколен от влажни зони с международно значение за птиците. Атанасовското езеро, Бургаското езеро и язовир "Мандра" осигуряват подходящи места за гнездене на редица редки представители на европейската орнитофауна.

Над града преминава и един от основните прелетни пътища "Виа понтика", който със своето птиче многообразие внася допълнително обаяние на езерата. По време на есенната миграция могат да бъдат наблюдавани над 300000 бели щъркела и около 30 вида дневни грабливи птици.

Защитена местност "Пода" е едно от малкото места в Европа, където на площ от 100 ха са установени над 259 вида птици.


The industrial city of Burgas in South-east Bulgaria is surrounded by the Black Sea and three lakes - Mandra, Vaja and Atanassowsko. Together with the Poda protected area they form a huge wetland area, vitally important as a resting station for many birds using the East European migration route known as the Via Ponticum.

As well as many waders, gulls and terns there are also rare and threatened species such as Pygmy cormorants, Dalmation pelicans and Red-breasted geese which may be seen feeding here.

For birdwatchers from other countries the Burgas region is famous as a migration viewpoint. Up to 300,000 storks and 30 raptor species can be seen.

In the protected area there are 9 different habitats in only 100 hectares. With brackish, salt and fresh water there is an incredibly high biodiversity (259 bird species), rarely found in the whole of Europe.


In unmittelbarer Nähe zur südostbulgarischen Küstenstadt Burgas befinden sich die vier international bedeutenden Brut- und Rastgebiete Poda, Mandra-Stausee, Waja- und Atanassow-See.

Sie beherbergen nicht nur die einzige gemischte Brutkolonie von Löffler, Braunem Sichler und fünf verschiedenen Reiherarten an der bulgarischen Schwarzmeerküste, sondern sind wichtiges Rastgebiet auf dem osteuropäischen Zugweg „via Ponticum“.

Zu Zugzeiten finden sich neben zahlreichen Limikolen-, Möwen- und Seeschwalbenarten auch bedrohte Arten wie Zwergscharbe, Krauskopfpelikan und Rothalsgans zur Rast und Nahrungssuche ein. Bekannt ist Burgas zudem als Schauplatz für den Storchen- und Greifvogelzug.

Allein während des Herbstzuges überfliegen bis zu 300 000 Weißstörche und 30 Greifvogelarten die Stadt und ihr Umland. Die Region Burgas ist zu einem „hotspot“ für Vogelbeobachter aus ganz Europa geworden.

Auf einer Fläche von ca. 100 ha bietet das Schutzgebiet eine Artenvielfalt, wie sie sonst kaum in Europa anzutreffen ist. 259 Vogelarten wurden bisher gezählt. Die 9 verschiedenen Habitate, dienen vielen bedrohten Tier- und Pflanzenarten als Zuhause und lassen sich vom Führungsweg aus sehr gut beobachten.

Happy Hunting, Tapsi and mariane
