BULGARIA - 2018

Another superb trip to this beautiful country with some very exciting finds including a an invasion of Rose-coloured Starlings unprecendented in recent times. For the second year running the Wingspan Bird Tour of Bulgaria was guided solely by Iordan Hristov (Dancho) who also co-guided the successful trip to lake Kerkini in Northern Greece in May. This trip report is written by Dancho and edited by Bob Buckler.
