June Biebrza Marshes Białowieża Forest
Daylight
roughly
4.15 - 21.00 CEST 4.15 - 21.00 CEST
Landscape Vegetation's totally green and many wild flowers bloom in the meadows.

Water level is usually low - the Biebrza River is in its main channel.

Vegetation is in full bloom both in the forest and in the meadows.
Birds The temperature grows so you get more restricted to the mornings and evenings when watching wildlife.

June is still good for Warblers, especially the late arrivers, but usually all of them can be spotted. Many early arrivers get their second broods and thus sing again. Birds of prey can be spotted in the mornings.

The last waders hatch and fledge. White-winged terns are feeding intensively, slowly loosing theit breeding plumage.

Three-toed Woodpeckers are feeding young until last week of June. All of the other Woodpeckers have already fledged by the first week of June.

Mammals In the mornings and evenings Elks can be spotted in the marshes, it is more difficult to get a close view though. Males start growing antlers.

It is actually good time to watch Beavers as the nights are short and they start feeding early.

Bison feed inside the forest and don't move around much. Sometimes they seek shelter from mosquitos in the sunny meadows.

Beavers give birth as well and are only watchable near their lodges in the evenings or early mornings.

Others Some late amphibians can still be active.

Reptiles are more obvious with Sand Lizards, Grass Snakes and Adders in sandy places. Vegetation blooms so it is also best time for Orchids, Dragonflies, Butterflies and Moths.
