The cranberry harvesting season is going on in Belarus. In the Vitebsk region, the Miory and Sharkovshchina districts are famous for their rich harvest of wild berries. A large bog-lake complex Yelnya is located there. Even people from neighboring regions travel to the swamp for wild berries. The berries are bought by state purveyors and private traders. In the Yelnya reserve there are rare plants for Belarus, for example, cloudberries and round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia). The season of observation over cranes is also on in the swamp. Every autumn they come flying here before leaving for the winter.
