Brouskův mlýn - signboard

Brouskův mlýn (Brousek’s Mill) National Nature Reserve (NNR) is located alongside the Stropnice river. The territory is situated between the villages of Byňov and Borovany. The reserve was founded in 1991 and includes approximately 3 km long stretch of the wide and flat Stropnice river alluvial plain. The territory is a part of the proposed Stropnice site of the European importance. The main subject of protection is an extensive complex of aquatic, wetland, peaty and meadow vegetation communities with the occurrence of many rare and endangered plant species. This area also provides nesting and feeding biotopes for wetland birds as well as abundant populations of amphibians and rich entomofauna, with dragonflies, in particular. Also the bluethroats (Luscinia svecica) are building their nests here. But what you will be most impressed by at first sight is a well preserved, actively meandering channel of the Stropnice river.
