Photographing pelicans 

We take our time photographing the pelicans in Kerkini. Expect an intensive workshop exploring different techniques. We’re always on the lookout for other birds, such as cormorants or seagulls, that may come our way.

Transfer to the raptors

After our last morning session with the pelicans, we will head for Bulgaria after lunch and drive to Madjarovo in the eastern Rodopi mountains. 

Raptor hide

We drive to the raptor hide in the morning to photograph golden eagles, vultures, foxes, and jackals until late in the afternoon.

Transfer to Dimitrovgrad

After breakfast, we relocate to Dimitrovgrad, where two photo hides await us for spotting woodland birds, woodpeckers, different species of finches, tits, and possibly buzzards. The second day, we rotate.
