European herring gull (Larus argentatus) Stettin lagoon, Oder Delta, Poland.

Stepnica, a small fishing village, at the Polish side of the Stettin (Szczecin) where local fishermen fish for perch, freshwater bream and rudd. These fishermen of Stepnica offer visitors opportunities to photograph eagles. The eagles used to be shy from being shot at and persecuted over the centuries, but now they are used to collect some of the by-catch fish from the fisherman. The fishermen probably bring in more income through wildlife watching compared to the actual fishing.

The Oder Delta is located in the Baltic coast in Germany and Poland. The Oder Delta is a European Rewilding area since June 2015, and the region is unique with a rich mosaic of large wild freshwater and marine ecosystems. It is strategically located on one of the ecological crossroads in Europe.The wild jigsaw of habitats includes rivers, heathlands, deltas, marshes, vast reed beds, forests, wild grasslands and bogs. IThe Oder Delta is rich in biodiversity as well as biomass.
