Winter offers easier ways to explore springs. If the ice-cover is thick enough, you can more easily move in marshy areas and also on the lake. It is also possible to discover objects that can not be seen in the warm, green season. In winter, it is clearly visible where warmer groundwater goes out of the ground - open water in the snow and ice. So, we went along one ditch with abnormally running water and arrived to a big spring, not described before. It's located in a wet forest between bushes and very difficult to see, when trees are leafy, although it is not far from the road.

Springs, rivers and lakes are our common treasure. The more natural status they have the more precious they are.
Successful application and implementation of river restoration and fish population status improvement projects. Scientific ichthyology studies with traditional and modern bio-telemetric methods.
