Join us on our Goshawk photography holiday located in the beautiful town of Iława, among the stunning pine forests of northern Poland.
A highly populated area for many fantastic winter raptors such as; Goshawk, White Tailed Eagle, Raven, and Rough Legged Buzzard.
These are joined by a host of Woodpecker species including; grey-headed, lesser spotted, middle spotted and three-toed. Many more woodland species also visit the feeding grounds.
The dates have been specifically chosen for the best activity, Goshawk (naturally our target species) breeding times and highest chance of snow covered grounds in Winter.
The majority of this birding tour in Poland will be using a photography hide style. Although very basic, The shelters are positioned perfectly in a landscape of mountainous coniferous forest with segments of bog and as the sun moves around there is good light throughout the day.
