A day on the ricefields

Today I went to check our ricefields, which are dry now, because they wait for the cultivation. This trip was a day long, because this fields are 160 hectares and I walked. We will have a lot of works with this, that they will be an amazing bird paradise. This fields are the best when they are flooded (May-), but today were good as well. I could observ hundreds of reed buntings, a lot of great white egrets, hen harriers, buzzards, a few white-tailed eagles, greylag geese, mallards, my first golden plovers in this year and many lapwings. If you wold like to see this fields, when they are The Best, please visit our website:

A weekend in the Hungarobirds Accommodation

Last weekend was busy in the Hungarobirds accommodation, because we went to birdring on saturday and we started the big renovation on sunday.

Saturday we ringed a few common specieses such as: goldfinch, great tit, blue tit, tree sparrow. In the evening we were lucky, because we catched a long-eared owl as well.

Sunday we cleaned, renovated the accommodation of the Hungarobirds. This day was a sunny spring day, so it was great to birdwatch as well. In the breaks we watched a migratory birds: geese (greylag, White-fronted), lapwings, hen herriers, buzzards, rough-legged buzzards and we could observ a adult white-tailed eagle as well.

Corn buntings feel the spring

This morning I went to meet with my friends, when I was hearing my first corn bunting-song in this year. It was great to hear this bird, becouse it means: the spring is coming.

Goosewatching at the Kecskeri-puszta Nature Conversation Area

Yesterday I went birdwatching to the biggest fishpond of this region. Its name is: Kecskeri-reservoir.
Every autumn and winter a lot of geese visit this place. They usually fly on the lake beetween 10 and 14 p.m. and they drink and have a rest.
When I arrive at I observed one Rough-legged Buzzard and two Hen Harrier.

The geese fed in the lawn and they were more anxious than they usually do. There was a fox which agitated them. When I arrived into the birdwatching-hide on the lake were being about 6000 White-Fronted and a few Greylag geese.
The best goose species was one Barnacle Goose which is rare species in this country. There were four white tailed-eagles which usually attacked the geese....

Short-eared owl in the focus

This morning was a nice sunny day in my town: here was the time to take a few pictures. We (my fiancee and I) went into the park of the church, becouse we knew, that there roost everyday about 50 long-eared owl. In the park are 8-10 pines and these birds prefer this trees in the wintertime then the deciduous trees. We took a few pictures, when we was observing 2 short-eared owls between the the other owls. We were very happy, becouse every time, when we can observe this species is a great day. If you want to have a similar nice day in Hungary, please check our website:
