Another great day around Apaj
A day trip from Budapest to the northern part of the Kiskunsag region is always rewarding. But even a half-day can turn up some impressive birds, as was the case yesterday when I took a nice chap from New York out for the morning. His main "target" was Saker Falcon and I had a hunch where they would be, but was not over confident as they do roam a bit at this time of year. Yet, sure enough, two birds soon obliged, both on the ground, one eating prey whilst the other watched. Later the fish-ponds were a bit quiet, at least at first, before 2 Ospreys and then 2 White-tailed Eagles, as well as the usual numerous Marsh Harriers, gave great views.
