Autumn Migration Birdwatching Tour in Bulgaria
This 8-day birding Bulgaria Autumn Migration is a leisurely-paced tour available on set-departure (or on request) where you will have before your eyes unforgettable sights from the autumn migration of small and large species of birds.
These birds perform their annual migration for thousands of years now and follow irreversibly one and the same route. A route bearing from ancient times the name of ‘Via Pontica’. This is the second biggest flyway in Europe after the one that passes above the Straight of Gibraltar.
Every year along the Bulgarian Black-sea coast migrate scores of thousands of Storks, Pelicans, larger and smaller birds of prey and hundreds of thousands of songbirds, waders, plovers, and other birds.
This entire, innumerable multitude comes from the whole of Eastern Europe, Russia, Scandinavian countries. We can experience birding Bulgaria with more than 150 species of birds, among them the Broad-billed- and Marsh Sandpiper, Temminck’s Stint, Red-necked Phalarope, Bee-eater, Hoopoe, Roller, Golden oriole, Caspian Tern, Pied Wheatear, Pallid- and Montague’s Harrier, Levant Sparrowhawk, Long-legged Buzzard, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Booted Eagle, Short-toed Eagle, Red-footed Falcon, etc.
