Join Bogdan Boev on our Bulgaria wildlife photography holiday located about 10 km from Dimitrovgrad in a mixed forest with prevailing oak and acacia trees.
A densely populated habitat for many fantastic species such as; Hoopoe, Bee-Eaters, Song Thrush, Hawfinch, Common Nightingale, Semi-collared flycatcher, Syrian Woodpecker, European Green Woodpecker, Red-backed Shrike, Masked Shrike.
These are joined by European Jay, Levant Sparrowhawk, European scoops owl, Little egret, grey heron, black and white storks, night heron, lots of species of waders, black-winged stilt , little bittern, and kingfisher among many more species.
The majority of this birding tour in Bulgaria will be using a photography hide style. The shelters are positioned northeast meaning in the early morning there is a slight backlight. As the sun moves around there is good light illuminating the main areas where most birds like to land throughout the day.
The main photographic hide we will be using has a stunning drinking pool which many species take the advantage of regularly for both quenching their thirst and to bathe .
There is so much to do during this nature photography tour. Bogdan has designed many set-ups so you really can create a great portfolio, what ever your target species for the area.
Macro photography is also fantastic in the area and time in the perfect setting can be arranged for you.
The photography hides are managed to the highest standards by our team member Bogdan. They are located on the beautiful wetlands and woodlands of the migration routes around the Marica river in Bulgaria.
Day 1 You will be welcomed by your photography tour leader at Sofia airport, where we will transfer to our accommodation.
Days 2-4 After an early breakfast we transfer to our photographic location in the heart of the Bulgarian wetlands for some stunning scenes as waders, kingfishers, storks, herons and coypus among others can be captured at eye level.
In the afternoon, we’ll enter the stunning hides in beautiful surrounding and watch as the spring heat brings down a huge array of species down to the drinking pools.
Day 5 After breakfast (depending on your flight time) You will be picked up and transferred to the Airport for the onward flight.
