Dalmatian Island of Nin Celebrates European Birdwatching Day


Today is European Birdwatching Day on the Dalmatian island of Nin…

The Nin salt factory will celebrate European Birdwatching Day in cooperation with the Nin Tourist Board on Friday 2 October.

Ornithologists from Zagreb will talk to visitors at 10:00am and 2:00pm. They will explain what kind of birds now live in salt pans and which of them are migratory birds. They will also give lectures about the importance of saltworks as a habitat.


Later tonight (7:00pm) at the Baroque house in the old town of Nin there will also be a lecture. This ecological event has an educational character, informing locals and tourists about the life of over 200 bird species that choose the Lagoon of Nin for their home. The most famous are the black winged stilt, Kentish plover, Little Egret and the kingfisher.


The area is listed in the ecological network NATURA 2000 habitats, made up of areas that are important for the conservation of endangered species and habitats.
