Kör Gediz

Kör Gediz is located on the southern skirts of Foça Hills, at the far north of Gediz Delta. It is one of the old beds of Gediz River. In the area where the river meets the sea, mud flats are formed during periods of rainfall. Bird species such as ruddy shelduck (Tadorna ferruginea), great egret (Ardea alba) and small egret (Egretta garzetta) are mostly seen in these mud flats. Since it is fresh water, there are reed areas. This allows different bird species to be seen together. Songbirds that are dependent on reeds, such as the whiskered tit (Panurus biarmicus), the marsh tincture (Emberiza schoeniclus), the reed reed (Acrocephalus scirpaceus), are among the species heard and seen in the region. It is also possible to observe bird species such as caravan (Numenius arquata), flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) and suna (Tadorna tadorna) when looking towards the coastal swamps. Among the mammalian wild animals, coyote (Canis aureus), rock marten (Martes foina), badger (Meles meles) and wild boar (Sus scrofa) species are seen. In addition, although there are rumors about the presence of a hyena (Hyaena hyaena) in the area, no findings have been found so far.
