Photographer's Note

View of Sloneczny Gorny Pond.

The Milicz Ponds (Polish: Stawy Milickie) are a series of small lakes in Lower Silesian Voivodeship, south-western Poland, in the valley of the river Barycz, close to the towns of Milicz and Zmigród. There are approximately 100 ponds, with a total area of 77 square kilometres.

Due to their importance as a habitat and breeding ground for water birds, the ponds are the site of a nature reserve (established 1963, area 53 km˛), which is protected under the Ramsar convention (one of 13 such sites in Poland). Since 1996 it has also formed part of the larger protected area known as Barycz Valley Landscape Park.
