Our birding tour of Eastern Turkey commences around the shores of Lake Van, where we will seek out Moustached and Paddyfield Warbler in the dense reed beds, while on the lake itself, our targets include Marbled Teal, the threatened White-headed Duck, Dalmatian Pelican, Pygmy Cormorant and Armenian Gull. On the lake's surrounding shores we will also scan for a selection of waders that may include Terek and Broad-billed Sandpiper.

As we move further north-east into the steppe and semi desert areas, we will attempt to find Great Bustards and Demoiselle Cranes, with a potential supporting cast of Montagu’s Harrier, Steppe Eagle, the exquisite Citrine Wagtail and Twite, to name but a few. In the mountains our targets will include two very special birds: Caucasian Grouse and Caspian Snowcock! With luck, we will also pick up Asiatic Velvet Scoter, Lammergeier, Wallcreeper, White-winged Snowfinch and Asiatic Crimson-winged Finch. In the region’s woodlands and farmland we will be on the lookout for a variety of woodpeckers and Red-breasted and Semi-collared Flycatcher.

Other species that we may encounter on our route include Ferruginous Duck, Black Stork, White-tailed and Eastern Imperial Eagle, Little Bustard, several species of larks, Radde’s and Alpine Accentor, White-throated Robin, Sombre Tit, four species of nuthatch, including the near endemic Krueper’s, and Pale Rockfinch.

This adventure through fascinating, historic Eastern Turkey offers great birding in often stunning scenery, all at a fairly relaxed pace. The tour is complimented by welcoming people, delicious local cuisine and comfortable accommodation, and is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable birding and cultural extravaganza!

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
