THE PLACE TO PHOTOGRAPH THE RED-FOOTED FALCON AND MANY OTHER BIRDS OF PUTZA

The birdlife on the Puszta in Hungary is very rich. Large open plains with old farms are typical for the landscape, in which at some spots concentrations are of Red-Footed Falcons. Just in these locations our local partner has two tower-hides to photograph these beautiful birds during the breeding period. In the nest boxes, hanging at the same hight, the Red-Footed Falcons are breeding. It offers opportunities to photograph them in flight, to photograph the mating and the handover of prey. In the same spot Rollers and Kestrels breed. It leads to spectacular interactions between those species. A great topic to photograph as well.

On the same open plains there are also some lagoons. Water levels fluctuate based on the rain and other weather conditions. At one of these lagoons  a hide has been made to photograph Black Stork, Night Heron, Great and Little Egret. Regularly they do get close to the hide. From time to time also the Common Crane shows up. An even less regular visitor, but even more spectacular is the White Tailed Eagle.

 

In addition drinking hides in the woods offer the opportunity to photograph Syberian Woodpecker, Golden Oriole and many other birds typical for the Hungarian Woods. One of those hides is also a tower-hide, where birds are attracted by playing sounds.

THE HIDES

 of the hides do have airconditioning.  In addition the hides do have mirror glass to ensure we do not disturb the birds. The hides have comfortable chairs.

MANY DIFFERENT SPECIES POSSIBILITIES FROM THE HIDES

 

A real Puszta experience is offered from the hides where you can photograph the Roller, Bee-eater and the Hoopoe. Depending on the breeding of the those birds different hides are used. Succes cannot be guaranteed as the breeding fluctuates every year both in time and in place. Our local partner will off course do their utmost best to maximize the opportunities.

PRACTICAL INFO

TOUR GUIDE

 

This trip are accompanied by Wildpix guide and enthusiastic nature photographer Andius Teijgeler. He will arrange all practical matters for everyone. In case you have photographic questions you can raise them with him and your fellow photographers.

 

FLIGHTS AND TRANSPORT

 

Because we normally have a mix of Dutch and Belgian travellers, we deliberately offer this trip exclusive flights. This is for practical reasons so that everyone can choose how and when they want to travel. Of course we will give advice as soon as the groups are formed, so that we can perhaps still leave as a group. But in any case there is a final appointment at the airport.

 

Its is relatively cheap to fly with WizzAir from Eindhoven, Rotterdam, Maastricht or Charleroi (BE) to Budapest Airport (Hungary). From our experience is that the best connection, fast and (important!) without expensive weight limitation for your material. On site, all trips are included and arranged.

Very good quality quality lodge with all modern comforts. Full Board and WiFi available.
