Austro-Hungarian Tour

So that is another tour successfully completed! This time we were in Austria, the Alps and Seewinkel region, and Hungary, the Hansag. We recorded 150 species despite some poor, rainy, weather. Highlights included a mix of some great upland and lowland birds, like White-backed and Syrian Woodpeckers, Western Bonelli's Warbler, Alpine Chough, Ring Ouzel, Firecrest, Water Pipit, White-tailed, Imperial and Golden Eagles, Montagu's Harrier, Great Bustard and many waders and wildfowl.
