Dehtář Pond (Bird Area)

The Dehtář Pond is the tenth biggest pond in the Czech Republic and the third largest fish pond in the district of České Budějovice. It is situated approximately 15 km to the west of České Budějovice. The water body covers an area of 246 hectares. The maximum depth is approximately 6 meters. The pond lies on the Dehtářský stream, the Vltava river’s affluent. It represents a significant ornithological site with an occurrence of a number of common and protected water fowl species. When the water level is low, the pond is used as a stop on the migratory route of the waders. The White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) can also be seen here at times.
