An autumn migration special at the eastern fringes of Europe.

Here, on the very edge of the Black Sea, spectacular numbers of soaring birds head south including White and Black Storks, Honey Buzzards, Marsh Harriers, Eurasian and Levant Sparrowhawks, Lesser Spotted and Short-toed Eagles, Red-footed Falcons and Hobbies. This route is also used by passerines including large numbers of Red-breasted Flycatchers, Red-backed Shrikes, Golden Orioles, Hoopoes, Bee-eaters and a host of warblers. Some of the noteable residents include Syrian Woodpecker and Sombre Tit. This weeklong break is timed to witness the greatest numbers on their journey towards Turkey and then on to Africa. Tens of thousands of raptors ranging across thirty species have been recorded here.  In addition, our two bases are very close to a number of important wetland sites with such exciting possibilities as Dalmatian Pelican, Pygmy Cormorant and Ferruginous Duck.
