The field visit at the colony and the survey at a certain distance show that the bulk of Little Egrets and Pygmy Cormorants has hatched their eggs while the other species continue egg incubation.

The colony seems undisturbed and in good shape. Aerial pictures show that the colony is more or less of the same size as last year. Nevertheless, the exact number of breeding pairs is expected to be verified at the end of the breeding season.

The numbers and the pictures from the colony demonstrate that Divjaka-Karavasta is the largest colony of Herons and Cormorants in Albania. This colony provides without any doubt an extraordinary asset for the biological diversity in Albania. A value that should be protected especially from the hydro-logical changes that might affect the entire habitat.
