The easternmost part of the Nida bog holds a lookout platform, which provides a good view of the surrounding area. The bog is a location of choice for geese and cranes during autumn. In Latvia, this is the closest bog to the Baltic Sea, it covers a total of 2411 ha.

Many rare birds nest in the Nida bog: whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus), golden plover (Pluvialis apricaria), Montagu's harrier (Circus pygargus), as well as other endangered or protected birds. The forest that boards the bog is a home to the stock dove (Columba oenas). The marsh is an essential location for the migratory geese, mainly for the white-fronted goose (Anser albifrons) and the bean goose (Anser fabalis), that use it as a place for rest and feeding before crossing the Baltic Sea.


Be aware! 

The Nida bog is part of the Nature Park conservation area. Noting the importance of the Nida bog and Lake Pape in the life of birds, both during nesting and migration, the two have gained the status of a wetland of international importance.
