Spotted Nutcracker photography in Bulgaria

Posted Monday 2nd February 2015 at 15:31 by dancho_hristov

Bulgaria is the country for Red-backed Shrikes photography. It's been a long time since I last went out watching and photographing them.

So I did, managed to wake up before sunrise which was a bit difficult and soon I was on my way early enough to arrive at the first location at the "golden...

In the period March 8-15 a friend and i did a tailored birdwatching trip in Bulgaria and Greece. Here I shall try to recap all the information with some figures.

My friend came over with the aim to see 8 target species: Dalmatian Pelican, Saker Falcon, Capercaillie, Three-toed Woodpecker, White-backed Woodpecker, Pygmy Owl, Rock Partridge and Black Vulture. From all these 8 species we managed to see half of them: Dalmatian Pelican, Pygmy Owl, Rock Partridge and Black Vulture.
