Wetland birds

Wetlands are environments situated between land and open water, including water soaked land areas, for example shallow sea bays overgrown with reed, mires, flood forests and streams. Thriving in wetlands is a range of bird species specific to this environment, such as common cranes, common snipes, sedge warblers and reed buntings.
