In this area, Veliko Blato and Malo Blato represent a rare haven for wetland birds during their nesting, migration and wintering. Here we can see coots, grebes, herons, Ferruginous duck, and the white spoonbill. While Veliko Blato is the largest of the three freshwater lakes on the island of Pag and represents a large, open aquatic surface, in summer Malo Blato dries out due to the dense layer of wetland vegetation.
