Nice, thank you. Not many posts from that little state.

Curious - roughly what elevation were those from?

cheers

Hey Jimi, thanks for your message.
The altitude was between 220 and 313 m. However we had the feeling to be higher because of the surrounding mountains. But the sea was quite near.

Here are some pictures of the habitat, the Kupa river, between Slovenia and Croatia :
