Site description A storage reservoir on the Nysa Szalona river, 5 km north-west of the town of Jawor, situated in an area of farmland. It consists of two water-bodies joined by a narrow channel, the Gardziel. The larger water-body, Zbiornik Dolny, is adjacent to a dam near the village of S³up and has small patches of willow Salix scrub along its eastern and southern banks. The smaller one, Zbiornik Górny, is situated close to a backwater, near Stary Jawor, and has reedbeds Phragmites, islands and patches of Salix scrub. The whole area floods in spring, creating large expanses of shallow water and silt.
