The Nin lagoon presents a unique biological value and is an important bird habitat both for Croatia and Europe and more than 200 bird species choosing the lagoon of Nin as home.
The watching takes place in salt pans where volunteering ecologists and bird watchers will get a chance to spot different species, including the rare black-winged stilt (Himantopus himantopus), which is on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the Kentish plover, grey plover, sea plover (Charadrius alexandrines), little egret (Egretta garzetta) and kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) etc.
The number of the endemic black-winged stilt breeding pairs visiting the lagoon annually has seen an increase, as this bird species population has dangerously decreased in the rest of Europe.
This area is listed in the Natura 2000 habitat, ecological network of nature protection areas for preserving endangered species and habitats.
You can be the luckiest one may even get the bird to pose for you, since this rare bird has made a nest next to the walking trail in the salt pans.
So, photographers may grab to take some beautiful photos in the Nin Lagoon.
