Hutovo blato Bird Reserve is marshland, created by the underground aquifer system of the Krupa River. It is fed from the limestone massif of Ostrvo that divides the Deransko and Svitavsko lakes.

The International Council for Bird Protection placed this reserve on the list of important bird habitats
, and did so for good reasons: this reserve is the largest of its kind in this part of Europe, in terms of both size and diversity. It is home to over 240 types of migratory birds and dozens that make their permanent home in these sub-Mediterranean wetlands surrounding Deransko Lake. In the migration season, tens of thousands of birds fill this lake and its surroundings.

The reserve provides a unique oasis amongst the harsh arid karst of western Herzegovina. Teeming with freshwater fish, wild duck, geese, coots, hawks, herons, pheasants, wild boar and wild horses, it accommodates birdwatchers, nature lovers and families with children alike. For the latter, there is a very short but cute educational walk that starts from the motel.

Hutovo blato is located only 5km from the city of Capljina and is marked with clear signs on the M-17. Entrance fee to the park is 1 KM it is open all year round. It also has a picnic area, restaurant/caf and a motel.
