Seefeld, Austria 30th May-6th June 2012

  • In truth I did not expect to be constructing a trip report after this holiday but after seeing five “lifers” in our first four days I thought it might be useful to share the details.  I must stress however that for ultra keen birders there was not a mass of birds to take in...Bob Shiret reports.

Christmas in Vienna and Bratislava 22-28 December 2007

  • This was not a wildlife holiday by any means...but I recorded what we saw nonetheless. And it was a bit different!...Allan Finlayson reports.

Hungary/Austria 5 - 15 May 2005

  • To the south is the Hansag Reserve between Tadten and the border with Hungary. The Hansag support a few Great Bustards and there are observation towers to enhance viewing distances. The Einser Canal at the Hansag is worth walking along, in search of raptors, as well as Barred and Eurasian River Warblers....Jan Vermeulen reports

Birdwatching in Lower Austria Summer2001

  • This summer, 2001, my wife and I went for a week's holiday in Fuschl, about 45 minutes from Salzburg. The village was very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our week's holiday. I had hoped that I would be able to get in some good alpine birdwatching but unfortunately this area proved disappointing...Mike Millar reports

Neusiedler-see / Seewinkel (May/June 1999)

  • Just behind the hotel you can find very nice prairies managed for the storks. Ecological friendly mowing, high grass, humid and above all nice birding spots for birds like Nightingale. Closer to the Altmühlsee, Great Reed Warbler, Marsh Warbler and Bluethroat were present. Most important for the area were the observations of (breeding) birds like Redshank, Curlew and Black-tailed Godwit...Belgian Birder Dirk Raes report
