On the road to Łomża, we turn right and in less than three minutes, we see first Narew meanders behind the trees. After a while, there’s nothing between us and the view and our lips form a round ‘wow’ shape. The further we drive, the more surprised we are that we haven’t found this place before.
The place has only been turned into formal Narew Valley Landscape Park in 1994. It was established to protect the unique nature and the looks of this place. Many tiny roads cross through it and numerous bird watchers and ornithologists accost us while we’re here. There’s a lot of them here and they wonder if we use the drone to peek on birds.
Imagine that there’s more than 200 species of birds here from which 137 make their nests here. Add 40 species of mammals and almost 750 plants. We cross the area in a car but it looks like it was designed for marches and bikes. Actually there are two such paths here too.
