Mazes of river channels, flooded meadows, peat-bog lakes and endless areas of wild marshes make a home to 48 species of mammals, 13 species of amphibians, 5 species of reptiles, 36 species of fishes and over 750 species of moths and butterflies! Yes, and bird species -over 270.


On such a trip it's easy to tick about 150 and up to 200 bird species! Including many top rarities, such as all 10 european woodpeckers (ecpecially White-backed, Three-toed, Grey-headed and Black), eagles: Spotted, Lesser-spotted, White-tailed, Golden, Short-toed and Booted among several other raptors.

When to go?

March - simply the best time ever for all species of woodpeckers. Also massive flocks of geese and ducks.

April - great for woodpeckers, owls and April adds plenty of migrating waterfowls, waders and raptors.

Late April/early May - has all of the above (but worse for woodpeckers) plus displaying ruffs! and great snipes on the lek! And mid-May brings late warblers: especially aquatic, river and barred. Plus flycatchers - collared and red-breasted, 4 species of marshy terns, bee eaters, rollers etc.

June or late May - still good for raptors, terns, aquatic warbler and bee-eaters, but you may miss great snipes and woodpeckers, as they will be hardly visible, because of dense foliage and tall grass at this time of year.

PLEASE NOTE: May is a peak of a birding season, so we are very busy, so please book asap! Ideally 3 months before your arrival. The sooner - the better. And cheaper...
