BirdID course in Bulgaria 2015: the end

Well, the time for the end has come.It was the last day of our trip which we used for a transfer from our last destination to Sofia. En route we stopped to stretch our legs and added Yellowhammer to the list. Thus the total number of birds seen in the period 30 April – 9 May is 224 bird species.

Some of their comments include:

“I have never seen anything like this in my whole life” (relates to bird migration)

“I was positively surprised by the birds and food in Bulgaria”

Well, it seems that the trip was a great success. We do this for a third time and our guests seem to like it.
