Hortobagy, Hungary, 13th July, 2011

Day 4

Our 3 day photo break with Saker Tours is over.

Still we are up at 05.30, usual two strong coffees and out on our own about 06.15 hours for a wander local to the hotel.

M.S. had done some good homework before this trip, his google map showed an area of water not 10 mins walk from the hotel.

Approaching this area we immediately saw

Spoonbill, 18 flying over

then we found the area was in fact a large reed bed area

we found

Sedge Warbler
Reed Warbler
Great Reed Warbler, 2 +
Penduline Tit, 1
Reed Bunting

Purple Heron, flew over
Great White Egret, flew over


                             Penduline Tit

                            Great Reed Warbler

walking back to hotel at 08.30 hours saw

White Wagtail
House Martin
Black Redstart
House Sparrow
Wood Pigeon
Collared Dove

An excellent 2 hours out.

Breakfast, then picked up at 10.00 hours by Arpad to be taken to Budapest Airport for our 15.15 flight home to London Gatwick.

Arrived home in South London at 18.00 hours

A big thanks to Mr. Janos Olah and his staff at Saker Tours who organised this photo event for us.
