A recent visit from the prominent bird photographer Johannes Ferdinand from Bird-lens provides some of the first results from the four day trip with NatureTravel.
"The area is a charming countryside which has to offer surprisingly good locations to shoot images of excellent birds". This is what Johannes posted on his blog a few days after his visit to our cottage.
Our guest assesses his visit as very productive and "an excellent chance" to photograph Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), Middle Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos medius), Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio), Sombre Tit (Poecile lugubris), Lesser Whitethroat (Sylvia curruca), Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos), Common Starling (Sturnus vulgaris), Ortolan Bunting (Emberiza hortulana) and a pair of beautiful colored Black-headed Bunting (Emberiza melanocephala). And indeed Eurasian Golden-Oriole (Oriolus oriolus).
You can see the images of Johannes in his gallery here. His images are for sale so if you are interested in purchasing any of them or other photos of birds, you are welcome to visit his picture shop here.
