Our comprehensive Central and Eastern European birding tour takes in several unique areas situated in four countries: Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Though the focus is essentially upon the region’s birds, we will certainly not neglect the many cultural and historical sites and old towns that we will encounter. Indeed, this is a region steeped in history, both ancient and recent, and there will be opportunities to opt out of some of the birding excursions for those who wish to take in a little history instead.

Central and Eastern Europe are quite simply superb for birds and birdwatchers. There are plenty of 'eastern' specialties that rarely, if ever, venture into the western regions of the continent; in fact, many species are far more abundant and easier to find in the east, no doubt due to its lack of development compared to the more affluent west.

The likes of Pygmy Cormorant, Ferruginous Duck, Eastern Imperial Eagle, Saker Falcon, Little Crake, Syrian and Grey-headed Woodpeckers, River Warbler and Lesser Grey Shrike are some of the species that come to mind. Other more widespread but no less spectacular birds include Golden Eagle, Great Bustard, Common Crane, Eurasian and Little Bitterns, Black Woodpecker and the beautiful Bluethroat.

We will stay in small guesthouses in good birding locations throughout this tour, and food will always consist of local cuisine. Several of the areas we visit are also wine-growing regions and we will no doubt sample a few!
