Srebarna Nature Reserve - BULGARIA - UNESCO #219
This beautiful card was sent by Tonichka (thank you very much Toni!), a bulgarian postcrosser in a UNESCO direct swap trade - as I've said last friday, I've received another Srebarna postcard from Tsveti in the meantime, but thankfully they aren't identical and this one is really beautiful - so the counting remains 33 down, 929 to go. This postcard took 25 days to arrive!
The Srebarna Nature Reserve is a freshwater lake adjacent to the Danube and extending over 600 ha. It is the breeding ground of almost 100 species of birds, many of which are rare or endangered. Some 80 other bird species migrate and seek refuge there every winter. Among the most interesting bird species are the Dalmatian pelican, great egret, night heron, purple heron, glossy ibis and white spoonbill.
