The Danube Delta, Europe’s second largest and the best preserved delta, is the ultimate birdwatcher’s paradise. Out of the 350 species of birds that live in here, 300 of them migrate. Check out our stunning pictures of some of the most photogenic inhabitants of the Danube Delta.
Early mornings in the Danube Delta are some of the quietest on the planet. Witness the sun slowly rise and gather strength and prepare, binoculars and camera ready, for one of the best bird watching experiences of your life.
Patience is key, as some of the birds, like the bee eater, can be quite shy.
But you can take all the time you need, as the bird watching season lasts from early spring to late summer.
With other birds, like the swan, you’ll be rewarded straight away. They like to show off.
Or the Great White Egret.
Each of the birds is special, like the Wood Sandpiper.
Or the Common Tern.
With the sun high up in the sky, grab your lunch and have a bite to eat.
You will catch the birds at lunch too.
Or while looking for it, like this Squacco Heron…
The White-Tailed Eagle
Or the Grey-headed Woodpecker
At work, like this Mediterranean gull.
Flying with grace, like the Grey Heron
Light and gracious…
Looking a little goofy, like the Black-winged stilt..
Or trying to pull their best landing..
Before joining the party. Everyone’s invited…
Now enjoy the colorful sunsets of the Danube Delta. Grab a bowl of storceag and prepare for tomorrow.
