Hortobagyi (or nother site in another country) in november..? (1 Viewer)

I would like to take a 2 weeks trip to a good birding area in November (in Europe). An area with many species to see would be nice. I know that November is late, but are there any really good birding spots at that time? How about Hortobagyi in Hungary? Po delta in Italy? Or some area in south of Spain? Maybe the area around Cagliari in Italy could be a great choice?

My four weeks of vacation is going to be in late september to early october (not november as I thought earlier).

I think it is a better time to visit Hortobagy than in november, but maybe still a little late?! Many species seems to have left Hortobagy already in august. What do you say..is it worth the effort to drive from Sweden thru Poland and Slovakia to Hortobagy at this time of the year?

I have now booked a room in Hortobagy (central) for the last ten days of september. I still feel that it may be too late for really good birding. Maybe Spain (south of Spain, Ebro-delta or Mallorca) would be better, with more species?!
