Introduction

 

Squacco Heron
 
One of our most bird-filled European itineraries, Romania is a fabulous country for birding and there is no better way to see the amazing Danube Delta than by boat. For a part of this tour, we are based on board a floating hotel, with our own crew and chef, and a small boat for daytime excursions. Each evening we meet the hotel boat in a new, stunning location, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the delta and vast numbers of waterbirds. Imagine cruising among Lily-filled lagoons, with Whiskered Terns flying around us and flocks of White Pelicans fishing in the shallows, watched by hundreds of herons of all the European species. We’ll also explore the salt-lakes, dry steppes and farmlands, lagoons, marshes and woodlands of Dobrogea, based at a charming small hotel in the port town of Tulcea. The open country that borders the Black Sea is bristling with great birds, from Pallas's Gull and Paddyfield Warbler to breeding rookeries of Red-footed Falcon and woodlands resounding to singing Icterine Warblers and Red-breasted Flycatchers. We visit in a period when most of the summer migrants are into breeding routines and there should also be late movement of passage shorebirds too - exceptional birding you can't afford to miss! Your tour leader will be Dave Pearce, assisted throughout by a local guide and driver. You can expect to see approximately 150 species.
