“White lake near Malak Preslav” is a protected area. It was declared as such with Order number RD-411 from 28.04.2004 from the Minister of Environment and Waters (published in 04.06.2004)
The “Malak Preslavets” swamp is situated at 412 km among the Danube and around 3-4 km from the homonymous village. It is about 20 km west of Lake Srebarna and is separated from the Danube via a levee. The east side of the swamp boarders with agricultural lands, the south boarder is drawn by a mixed forest, on the west is the levee which separates the river and the north reaches a road, leading from the village to the harbor. The swamp occupies 38.5 ha. It is notable that it is very similar in structure and build to Lake Srebarna. It has a very interesting geological history. Nearly a million years ago the northeast part of the Danube plain is already dry. In that dry land the lake was formed, of the erosion activity of the river, which washed away the getti sands. Those sands are unstable and easily destroyed, which makes them prone to sliding and washing. This process widened the mouth of the river and reduced the speed of the flow, and the sands in the water formed sand strips. The swamp has a broad water surface and a small floodplain terrace, which grows with the tide.
The climate of this region is characterized by cold snowy winters during which the swamp freezes. Summer is hot and dry and the swamp loses some of its water. Because of its flat topography and the general openness of the north in the winter cold winds rush unimpeded. The average January temperatures are minus 22-23 degrees C. Summer temperatures are high, but the average is + 22-26 ° C, the highest 35-38 degrees C. Rainfall amounts are 560 mm. Typical for late fall and early spring are persistent fog. Of the non-recurrent climatic events there are frosts in spring and autumn.
Currently, the water supply of the swamp is from surface waters, and, probably, underground springs. Its water surface is above the average Danube level. Its depth in the northwest part reaches 5 m. The slope of the bottom in the southern parts is about 2 degrees, resulting in abrupt changes of the water surface with a slight increase in water.
Around the swamp you can see the following plant species: chicory, borage, red clover, small and bulging duckweed rootless wolfie, multiroot spirodela, floating hornwort, water buttercup, Fern leaf and broadleaf cattail and arguably the most famous plant of the swap – the white water lily. You can see Squacco Heron, small and large egret, gray heron, mute swan, whiskered tern, throughout the year – marsh harrier, buzzard, Montagu’s harrier, blackbird, hawk, Common Coot – its presence indicates that the water of the swamp is clean. Also, there are Ferruginous Duck, Great Crested Grebe, Garganey, Cormorant, and Bittern.
Swamp “Small Preslavets” was declared a natural landmark by Order № 310 of 04.19.1986 of the PSC.
