Crane Spectacular & Wild Goose Chase

HUNGARY One Stop

Hungary is just a short flight from many European cities but the country still possesses vast riches for the birdwatcher and naturalist, as it is still easy to find those "wild places" that are now so rare in Britain.


The vast Hortobágy National Park is an enormous mosaic of marshes, wooded river valleys, wetlands and commercial fishponds, interspersed with farmland and the ancient puszta the grasslands of the fertile Hungarian plain.


We have timed this tour so that we are here before the winter snows, but at a time when the Hortobágy teams with birds.

The main species to be found here at this time is the Common Crane, with perhaps 70,000 present. The evocative calls and the sights of vast flocks flying over our heads to roost is one of world's great wildlife spectacles.


We also visit at a time when geese, ducks and raptor numbers are high. During our five full days in the Hortobágy, we are likely to see Great Bustard, Saker Falcon, Rough-legged Buzzard, Eastern Imperial and Black, Grey-headed, Middle Spotted and Syrian Woodpeckers. We also witness the return movement of waders and the returning geese, mainly White-fronted, Taiga Bean and Greylag, with small flocks of Lesser White-fronted amongst them.

By visiting in early November we can also find one of the world's most beautiful geese, the Red-breasted.


The new lodge we use is excellent, the roads and motorways quick and efficient, and the food and wine are all very good. Come with us to Hungary!
