DESCRIPTION
The Vrina Plain is a large expanse of valley floor that stretches 10 km (6 mi) from the main Butrint archaeological site to Çuka e Aitoit, the conical shaped mountain near the Greek border. The plain was formed over 3,000 years ago by accumulating silt washed down from the Pavllas River. These fresh water marshes are particularly attractive to wintering water birds, such as the little egret, spoonbill, grey heron, little-ringed plover and lapwing. In 2002 the plain sheltered the greatest number of geese (white-fronted, graylag and red-breasted goose) ever recognized in an Albanian wetland site. During the migration season, terns, sandpipers, and curlews use the area as a feeding and resting ground. In 1993, the critically endangered slender-billed curlew was spotted.

Our travels will begin in Tirana.
