Evaluation of the role of the slonsk reserve poland for waterfowl

Acta Ornithologica (Warsaw) 19(7-11): 227-236

The Slonsk Reserve is one of the most important waterfowl reserves in Poland. Located in the flooded area of the Warta River, the reserve has 4 functions for the waterfowl: a breeding area, a molting ground, a resting ground during migrations and a wintering ground. About 2000 pairs of dabbling ducks nest in the reserve; .apprx. 10,000 drakes molt there; thousands of ducks (dabbling and diving) stay there during migration and wintering. Maximum concentrations of bean geese is .apprx. 36,000 individuals (Nov.). About 150 grey-lag goose pairs nested on the reserve and about 1100-1400 individuals of this species molted there. The number of wintering swans (mute and whooper swans) may be as large as 750 individuals. The Slonsk Reserve should be protected under the Ramsar Convention.
