In Western Europe, the draining of wetlands and human activity on shallow riverbanks has caused a strong decline of populations and its extintion in large areas like British Islands. In Eastern Europe it is threatened due increasing human influence. Picture was taken in Iori Basin, Kakheti Region, during the summer of 2014.
