Bird Watching

Hungary is sparsly populated and has an abundance of trees, lakes and wet land making it an ideal place for bird watching. In fact the unspoilt natural environment of lakes, reeds, forest, wetlands, rivers make it very unique to other parts of Europe.

The birdlife is very diverse because many eastern species reach their western most breeding point here in Hungary. It is not uncommon when bird watching in Hungary to spot well over 200 different species in a matter of days.

Other species include little bittern, great white egret, roller, great bustard, crane, red footed falcon, imperial eagle, ferruginous duck and black stork

The best times to come bird watching in Hungary are during Spring and Autumn when migrations are at their peak.
