By pj12
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 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.

Poda's international importance is enhanced by a mixed breeding colony of Spoonbill, Glossy ibis, and five heron species -- a noteworthy occurrence found only here on the Black Sea seen feeding here.
