ULTIMA FRONTIERA BIRDING
The late summer tour see large numbers of Pygmy Cormorants, waders, egrets, herons, pelicans, terns and passerines passing through at the magic Ultima Frontiera estate, a private property hidden in the very heart of Danube Delta, specially developed for nature tourism.
On both tours we shall also make use of their “photographic boat”, kitted out as a floating hide and we can hope to admire and take photos of Dalmatian and White Pelicans, Whiskered Tern, Ferruginous Duck and both Black-necked and Red-necked Grebes.
There will also be a range of other species to be seen, such as Pallas’s Gull, Bearded Reedling, Penduline Tit and a great variety of ducks, herons, egrets and waders.
Mammals you may see include Golden Jackal, Muskrat, Otter and Danube Delta Horse (one of the four “wild horses” of Europe).
The newly constructed lodge boasts large rooms, all with their own en suite facilities, and grounds that extend to over 2,500 acres of fish ponds, reedbeds, lagoons, riverine forest and salt steppe.
On the property there are more than 30 hides that are available for our use. Over 130 bird species will be present when we visit in May/June and September but you may want to choose which you wish to photograph, as these hides will provide you with some great photographic opportunities for many exciting species.
