The Special Ornithological Reserve of Krapje đol

The first ornithological reserve in Croatia, located between the villages of Drenov Bok and Krapje, has been protected since 1963.  The Special Ornithological Reserve of Krapje đol is the oldest oxbow of the Sava, and some of the characteristic rare species and plant communities that inhabit the oxbow were first described right here in Krapje đol.  The oxbow is protected as an ornithological reserve because it holds nesting sites of spoonbills and several kinds of heron: the grey heron, the purple heron, the little egret, the squacco heron, the black-crowned night heron, the little bittern and the ferruginous duck.
