Nadrybie Nature’s Path opened!

Monday, 2015-10-05

LW Bogdanka S.A., in cooperation with the Polish National Society for the Protection of Birds (Ogólnopolskie Towarzystwo Ochrony Ptaków, OTOP), have opened a new educational trail called Nadrybie. The trail runs around Lake Nadrybie, which is a man-made water reservoir formed as a  result of the mining work in the area. The Nadrybie educational trail can be found within the Łęczna Lake District Landscape Park, in an area of special natural value and protected as part of the Natura 2000 network.

The trail was formally opened on Friday, 2 October, on European Birds Day. At 8:30 AM, the offices of LW Bogdanka were the venue for a meeting with representatives of the local government and the media; they met to sum up a few months of work on the project. Between 10 AM and 1 PM, children and teenagers of the local schools in Puchaczów, Ludwin and Cyców walked along the nature trail and took part in competitions and integration activities.

The new natural attraction can be found in the village of Nadrybie (the commune of Puchaczów), about 50 km from the city of Lublin. This educational path is an opportunity to watch various types of habitats and species of animals typical of this part of Poland. Along the over-two-kilometre-long nature trail, there are rest spots, as well as ‘stop’ spots with educational signs containing descriptions of the birds, amphibians, plants, butterflies, dragonflies, mammals and reptiles to be seen along the path.

Our mining operations are based close to the Poleski National Park. The settlement of the soil in the area created a land depression that was filled with water, which made the area so attractive to many species of birds and other animals. We decided to take special care of the area and make it available to others. It is a great place for teachers to carry out their educational activities close to nature,” says Zbigniew Stopa, President of the Management Board of LW Bogdanka S.A.  

In the area of Lake Nadrybie, you can see many species of birds, including rare ones, such as those listed in the Polish Red Data Book of Animals. In spring, you’re welcome to visit the area to see terns, such as the white-winged tern, the whiskered tern, the black tern, as well as the black-headed gull. You can hear the sounds made by the great reed warbler, the sedge warbler, the Eurasian blackcap, the lesser whitethroat or the common nightingale, as well as the Eurasian bittern, whose sound resembles that of blowing air into a bottle, or the little bittern, which sounds like a barking dog, and the water rail, whose singing is similar to the squealing of a pig,” says Jarosław Krogulec, Manager for Nature Protection at the Polish National Society for the Protection of Birds.
