Half a century on, Glossy Ibis returns to Obedska Bara Ramsar Site

After more than 50 years of absence, the Glossy Ibis has once again returned to breed in the Obedska Bara Ramsar Site in Serbia.

Obedska Bara is also an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA). It is located on the banks of the Sava River some 30 km west of the capital Belgrade and was once considered a European stronghold of this species. During the late 19th and beginning of the 20th century, up to 4.500 breeding pairs were spotted congregating there during breeding season, according to research.
