The stabilization of water level and the increasing volume of water in spring and early summer, both led to a formation of significant shallow areas, which in conjunction with swamping processes provides a stable fodder base for the wetland fauna representatives.

Today we can see nearly completely restored not only the breeding birds, but also the migratory species, which have not yet regained their big number of previous decades.
