Nutcrackers are not very rare but for some reason there aren't very many photos of these birds. Perhaps the areas where they live are too distant. Well, not for me.

Nutcrackers can be seen and photographed in Bulgaria just outside my home town.Today I decided to try photographing them.

Initially I wanted something different. A unique photo that you don't see. Rather motivated I woke up at 6 a.m. and sneaked out of the bed to arrive at first light at the Nutcracker...

"Working" weekend

Posted Wednesday 21st August 2013 at 05:30 by dancho_hristov
This weekend I meant to work but I didn't. I wanted to just go somewhere and have a relaxed weekend in front of the computer. Well see the photos and guess if I did it :)

There was no internet, or at least no proper one. I meant to select the hotel on the basis of the internet connection and I thought I had but... no. The internet connection was total crap. I did do some work on one of the days but the next one was devoted to walking and photography which I miss a lot lately. Well,...

Birdwatching and photography in my local patch is what I do pretty often. After a hard week I decided to spend a few more hours in the bed on the Saturday morning and then go out :) Well, I walk up at about 9 am and off I went to my local patch about 20 km W of Sofia. A lovely oak woodland with open patches of grassland and scrub. It is still early for the meadow birds so I decided to focus on the woodland.

Initially it was pretty quiet. Nothing was calling. In a couple of minutes...

Birdwatching in Bulgaria: migration series

Posted Tuesday 19th March 2013 at 19:39 by dancho_hristov
Migration season is one of the most favourite of many people. Having some time on Saturday I decided to go back to some of the sites where I went last weekend. My idea was to make some comparison and note the advancing migration. The results were evident. Last week there were Stonechats all over the place and this week they were really scarce. Only a few individuals were hiding in the bushes here and there.

The first breeding waterfowl were already in the area. About 7 Garganeys were...
