State Wildlife Reserve Bylina
An over 47,000-hectare wildlife reserve is located in the north-west of
the region, in the Podosinovets area.
Wood-grouse lekking grounds number over 30 singing cocks simultaneously.
Broods of the white grouse that nearly disappeared from the territory of the
region about 40 years ago please the eyes. Mass nested populations of the
common crane are a real adornment. Geese, large in number, find refuge in
the bogs, some of them stay for nesting here. Cranberries, red bilberries,
cloudberries, and bog bilberries are found in the marshland.
The individual character of this land and its peculiar beauty attract tourists,
local historians, nature scientists and nature enthusiasts: contemplating
forestlands extending right up to the White Sea, north light flashes, fishing
for the grayling, paddling, nights at a camp-fire, and gentle murmur of brooks
interflowing with the howl of the bear and the roar of the elk.
The Bylina River is flowing slowly over deep pools with weighty pikes and
humpback perches, over backwaters where the beaver settles down and sandbanks
where ducks are found, cutting up the territory of the nature reserve from
north to south.
