Welcome to the architecturally acclaimed bird sanctuary, nature reserve Škocjanski zatok on the Slovenian coast.

I’ve posted images from here already, for example this one:

Excuse the blur but I wish to show you the font chosen for this nature reserve that is especially great for birdwatching.

In order to transpose the feeling I had those couple of hours in December as we were strolling around, however, more is needed. And as always, I wish to thank my parents for the great idea and a lovely day.

Today the first half of photos from our visit, those concentrated on birds before they are off to, what is it, Greenland? Some lovely views are saved for the next time.

    1. Thank you, Claudia! It’s also worth noticing that it’s free entry unless you’re a group.


      1. That is really nice, so that more people can enjoy it, and be encouraged to stop in.

    A lovely share Manja, the birds are never there when you appear with a camera, but it’s so nice to see there is an eco set-up , just in case you get lucky!

    You had a great birding day!

  6. Nice sighting. That looks like the kingfisher Alcedo atthis to me. Never having been to your country, I don’t know whether they are found there
