Autumn birding tour in Hungary


" I invite you to discover the natural heritage and
cultural history of the region "


When the autumn comes bird species from the North of Europe fly down into the areas where the weather is milder. In this time the Hungarian wetlands hold huge number of wintering and migrating birds. Many northern species like Red-breasted Goose, Lesser White-fronted and Greather White-fronted Goose, Barnacle Goose, Common Cranes are easier to observe in autumn and wintertime because they leave their northern isolated habitats. Many mountain dwelling birds come down to lower mountain.
Species include: Wallcreaper and Alpine Accentor.

Join for a great autumn birding adventure with Wings of Hungary!
