The popularity of Bulgaria as a premier birding destination has blossomed over recent years. Not surprising when one considers the country's geographical position on the crossroads of Europe & Asia, the wide range of habitats attracting a diversity of species & the presence of a major migratory flyway, Via Pontica, along the Black Sea coastline.
Bulagraia's birdlist, in excess of 400 species, includes many sought-after specialities, often amidst beautiful, wildlife-rich environments.
In this film, Malcolm introduces Bulgaria's major birding locations. We visit the Danube Flood Plain, the spectacular steppe habitat of coastal Dobrudja, the Ramsar site Bourgas wetlands, the coastal lakes of Durankulak & Shabla, the eastern & Western Rhodope Mountains & other bird-rich habitats around the country.
Join us discovering scores of bird species including a few on many birders' European wish list - Paddyfield Warbler, Masked Shrike, Ferruginous Duck, Semi-Collared Flycatcher, Wallcreeper...... 2 hours.
