The first jackals have already visited the illuminated strip of beach. Beginning from the evening of November 24 it is  possible to see what happens on the beach during the dark period. By way of two powerful IR lamps the illuminated area is visible about 50 metres to the water's edge – the swans are visible further away in the sea.
