At last our trip targeting the passage of Cranes through Hungary has been and gone. With 90,000 in the area and around 30,000 roosting at the lake where I spent a cold night there were bound to be opportunities. Alas, the weather let us down at the lake but the picture opposite was taken on the first day where Cranes came to drink in the afternoon.
Other thrills were the roost of 30 Long-eared Owls in "our" village, the bickering of the Pygmy Cormorants, the stream of Hawfinches coming to drink and bathe and the three photo sighting of Sparrowhawk and the one Goshawk. More pictures can be found on our trips page.
