Bulgarian birding next September
I will be guiding a birding tour in Bulgaria from September 19 – 26, 2009. Saturday to Saturday. 8 days - 7 nights That is a year away, but it will soon come around. We will spend time working the Black Sea coast where there will be good movements of birds moving south on passage. We can expect White Pelicans, White Storks, Lesser Spotted Eagles and an assortment of other raptors, wildfowl and waders. We will also go inland to the Eastern Rhodope Mountains to look for Griffon and (Eurasian) Black Vultures. We will also look for some typical Balkan residents like Syrian Woodpecker, Sombre Tit and Spanish Sparrow (the latter here in this photo). Do get in touch if this takes your fancy and you'd like to join us.
