Wet at the end

Towards the north end of ul. Trombity are marshy wetlands, full of reeds. In spring, the croaking of frogs can be heard a mile away. This is also the habitat of black-headed gulls, which are even noisier. Moorhens can also be seen. During hot, dry summers, the marsh can evaporate (as happened in 2005 and 2006).

Superimposed on the Google Earth map below is an outline of Jeziorki's marshy area. The wetlands' extent is largest in early spring. Within a few weeks of the onset of warm weather, the water level visibly falls.
