Tell me about it mate!
I found stuff very frustrating even away from the reedbeds anything i tried to take whether Spotted Flycatchers, Thrush Nightingales or even breeding Fieldfares - as soon as i stopped walking they were off
I intend to return on another trip but with another birder, a car, and in the first week of May. This time to the Forest area at Bialowisza for Woodpeckers and Owls but i do not envisage things being any easier particularly with 2 specialised groups of birds whose habitat is woodland cover! I would split the week both there and back at Biebrza but stopping on the other side of the river.
Is there much hunting in Poland?
