Mala Vrbica Fish Farm is located east of the town of Kladovo (65 km from the Donji Milanovac and 255 km from Belgrade). East of it, between the villages of Kostol and Mala Vrbica, there is the Mala Vrbica fish farm and Important Bird Area (the fish farm is not operational, hence the entrance is free, without the need to ask for permission). Beside the lakes, do pay attention to the surrounding dry pasture, loess bluffs and shrub vegetation (in winter, check the Danube, too).

The local bird list is some 120 species long and includes Red-necked Grebe, Pygmy Cormorant, Black-crowned Night, Squacco and Purple Herons; Little Bittern, Black Stork, Eurasian Spoonbill, Garganey, Ferruginous Duck, Western Marsh Harrier, Northern Lapwing, Black-winged Stilt, Common, Whiskered and Black Terns; European Turtle-Dove, Little Owl, European Nightjar, European Bee-eater, possibly European Roller, Hoopoe, Tawny Pipit, Sand Martin, Northern Wheatear, Eurasian Penduline Tit, Red-backed and Lesser Grey Shrikes; Spanish Sparrow and Ortolan Bunting.

When to go: breeding and migration seasons, but also winter if the water is not frozen.
