Our short breake to see Red-breasted Goose and Lesser White-fronted Goose is amazing!
2016-11-14 01:01:01

We have designed a short break in 2014 to see two rare and globally threatened waterfowl in Hungray: the RED-BREASTED GOOSE and the LESSER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE. Hortobágy National Park in Hungary is probably the easiest place to see these two geese within one short tour. The Red-breasted Goose numbers are continously increasing in the last 20 years (sort of doubled in every 5 years) and nowadays it is easy and predictable to see them. We regularly have hundreds of these majestic birds! The supporting cast is also excellent with thousands of Cranes, Eastern Imperial, Greater Spotted and White-tailed Eagles, Long-legged Buzzard, Saker, Great Bustard and with an extension of a day or two you can see Ural Owl and woodpeckers in the nearby hills.

Our tour is running in late October and in March, please take a look at our tour calendar and select the most suitable dates for you! Come and see these rare geese with us! We also design custom tours for single travellers and friends!

We are staying in the newly opened Bíbic Nature Lodge and often both Red-breasted Goose and Lesser White-fronted Goose is a 'garden bird' here. Take a look of the images taken in the past two weeks from the lodge!

Crazy birding in the Danube Delta
2016-09-05 12:45:00

Our Danube Delta and Dobrudja Autumn tour was a great trip again and we have seen so many great birds and had really nice experinece in all the three top birding destinations visited during the tour. Last week of August is one of the best time to witness bird migration in this region but also good to find some of the more interesting breeding birds before they heading to the wintering places. We encountered 187 birds pecies on this a week long tour with highlights like Dalmatian and White Pelicans, Greater Flamingo (rarity in the country) Little Bittern catching 3 frog in a row in front of our boat, Levant Sparrowhawk, Saker Falcon, 12 Little Crake in one lake, Stone Curlew, Broad-billed Sandpipers, a total of 176 Pallas`s Gull, Citrine Wagtail, Isabelline and Pied Wheatear, Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush, Paddyfield Warbler, Red-breasted and Collared Flycatcher and finished the tour with 28 Eurasian Dotterel. Also the sheer number of shorebirds and terns in the Danube Delta was astonishing!

Thanks for joing to this trip, detailed trip report will follow soon but until then the next year date is already online: 25 August to 1 September.

Come and join us for this fantastic tour in 2017!
