Introduction

 

Eastern Imperial Eagle by Peter Csonka
 
Hungary is the birding gem of Eastern Europe, and after several years we are very pleased to be returning to the region with a new itinerary in both Spring and Autumn 2019. Miles and miles of open skies, quiet villages, steppes and fishponds are some of the landscape features of the Kiskunság. This is in stark contrast to the beautiful wooded valleys and limestone karst habitats in the Bukk Hills. Our tour will encompass all of the richly diverse habitats that give this land locked country such an amazing wealth of breeding birds. A nation with a turbulent past, Hungary is still an unexplored gem for many western birders. Nine European woodpeckers are possible and several scarce European breeding birds such as Lesser Grey Shrike, Eastern Imperial Eagle and Saker have strong populations. Many of the farmland birds that are now under threat in Britain are still quite common here, thriving in a landscape which time forgot. We expect to walk a maximum of three or four miles a day over mostly easy terrain. Your tour leader Ashley Saunders will be joined by expert local guides throughout. You can expect to see 150 – 170 species.
