Spring is in full swing now in Hungary too with White Storks, Barn Swallows and House Martins returning from their wintering grounds.

Raptors are also on the move, the first Lesser Spotted Eagles are back and Pallid Harriers started to appear. Eastern Imperial and White-tailed Eagle are already incubating their eggs.

The usual Lesser White-fronted Goose flock is back to the Hortobagy as they left their wintering site in Greece heading to Scandinavia. A few Red-breasted...

Spring 2009 had brought some exciting birds such as an attempted breeding of Tengmalm's Owl in a nestbox in Northern Hungary and at least 3 different Dalmatian Pelicans, which were seen at many sites over a few weeks.

Nevertheless groups have seen the usual number of interesting species during our...
