Within the Hortobágy National Park, many subjects are found; species that we hope to capture images of include the White-tailed Eagle, Eastern Imperial Eagle, Common Buzzard, Caspian Gull, Jackdaw & more. Whilst at the passerine hide, species should consist of Lesser & Middle-Spotted Woodpeckers, Siskin, Hawfinch, Bullfinch.
The four days spent in the hides will be long, but hopefully productive; after an early breakfast at the hotel, lunch & snacks are taken into the hides. We will enter the eagle hides at about 5 am & leave the hides at 5 pm.
Our trip uses the excellent Bíbic Nature Lodge
in Balmazújváros, perfectly located to reach any of the hides included in our itinerary.
According to eagle activity, the intent is to rotate the group around the quartet of hides available to us. Should someone wish to spend several days in the same hide, this is also achievable. We will have four whole days for photography during this tour which allows three days in the eagle hides & one day in the Passerine drinking hide.
Our local guides will additionally facilitate a visit to one of the large Long-eared Owl day-roosts which have up to 200 birds present in winter.
