The first breeding of the Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus) in Slovakia was documented in 2019 on the water reservoir Glabušovce (southern Slovakia). The nest was located in the cattail (Typha sp.). Minimum four eggs were laid and two chicks hatched. This breeding in Ipeľ river catchment may be the result of the increase of European population as well the species bred in the neighbouring Ipoly – Völgye Special protection area, where this species start to breed in 2005 and already two pairs bred in 2018.
