Sadly in August we were not treated to the sight of many birds, though you could see the results of all the bird poo in the ruined trees around the area.

Fascinating birds, and in the Nehrung it seems they have grown rather used to people. Ironically, in my country we eat these birds while eels are protected. In Lithuania, it seems things are the other way around. Here they protect the cormorants and eat the...More

Quite an experience. The scenery is really something different and the watching of the birds is somehow addictive.

Very close to Juodkrante, but a bit hard to find. If you bike to Nida, you will find it in the end of Joudkrante, on the right side. Absolutely great show! Thousands of birds in their nests. Perfect for all nature lovers!

Whatever you may think of Comorants, this place is worth a visit since it is rather a rare sight for most people. The Comorant population has increased greatly since I first visited ten years ago, and now counts many thousands. The place can be a...More

I recommend to visit this place and to see this big colony of cormorants. Sound and view there are unbelievable. The forest there is dead and you will not see such view anywhere else in Lithuania.

Useless to argue "is it worth seeing?". It is a colony of herons and cormorans. They nest here, and since their excrements are acidic, nothing grows below their nests. Simple as that. It is on the main road, so - you can spend 10 mins...More

For anybody interested in birds this is one of the most amazing sites - cormorants living in trees. These are not a small number. This is a very well established colony. Actually it has been increasing in size so fast that they have been trying...More
