Red-breasted Goose Short Breaks
Unique opportunity to visit the world wintering site of the stunning and very endangered Red-breasted Goose.
Branta-Tours will give you now the chance to see this Enigmatic Arctic Breeder right on the doorstep of our Birding Lodge.
Large concentrations of White-fronted Geese plus a few of the exceedingly rare Lesser White-fronted Goose also feature in the programme, plus a large array of waterfowl including divers, grebes and ducks. There is good chance of an Eagle Owl and outside possibility of Greater Black-headed Gull. Little and Pontic Gulls, desmaresti sub-species of Shag, Syrian Woodpecker, Calandra Lark and Bearded Tit are also on the agenda. Raptors are well represented too including White-tailed Eagle, Rough-legged and Long-legged Buzzards, Marsh and Hen Harriers, Merlin, Peregrine and, with a good luck, Saker Falcon and Greater Spotted Eagle may be spotted.
We provide comfortable and affordable accommodation at Branta Birding Lodge overlooking Durankulak Lake and Black Sea in Bulgaria.
The best time of year to see Red-breasted Geese is during the months of January and February.
