Panorama

This floodplain terrace at the confluence of the Dnieper (Dnipro) and Oril Rivers is one of the last remaining pristine floodplain landscapes along the Dnieper since large areas were flooded and destroyed when the river was confined and dams constructed. Nonetheless, depending on discharges from the upstream and downstream reservoirs, the Site’s water level fluctuates considerably. This system of watercourses and floodplains with numerous lakes, mires and marshes hosts communities of white willow (Salix alba) and aquatic plants such as water caltrop (Trapa natans) and floating fern (Salvinia natans). The Site is a key point on the Dnieper bird migration route and an important nesting place for the nationally threatened oystercatcher (Haematopus ostralegus) and stork (Ciconia nigra). In addition to birds, the Site supports the internationally protected European otter (Lutra lutra); the snakes Coronella austriaca and Vipera renardi; and the toad Pelobates fuscus. Some 40 fish species, including the sterlet (Acipenser ruthenus), are recorded. The Site is surrounded by the cities of Dnipro and Kamianske as well as other large settlements, and it is popular for recreation and scientific education.
