Abstract: The avifauna of the artificial water-reservoir in the Kis-Balaton Landscape Protection Area was studied between 1984 and 1988. The study area includes a newly made lake of 2500 hectares and its surrounding marshes, meadows, forests, and bushy vegetation. During the first five years of the new lake's surroundings, eighty-four breeding bird species were recorded. Among the eighty-four species, there were fifty-six, which had been breeding in the area before it became flooded in 1984. The other twenty-eight species were pioneers or settlers in the area after the lake had been made. The nesting of the Red-crested Pochard (Netta rufina) here is the first record in Hungary.Keywords:
