Transylvania September 2006

  • Once more our Transylvania and Hortobágy tour proved the perfect pairing.  The two habitats – vast open atmospheric puszta and fishponds on the one hand, dramatic mountain scenery, gorges, and high-elevation conifer forests on the other...Bryan Bland reports for Sunbird

Romania 1st-12th May 2009

  • Romania has much to offer and, in my opinion, is one of the finest countries in the whole of Europe for birdwatching, in some remarkably unspoilt surroundings...Jan Vermeulen reports.

Romania 16th - 23rd June 2003

  • Now we took a boat into the Delta - definitely the way to see this beautiful water wonderland.  Many water birds were seen in huge numbers - including little/squacco/night/purple herons, glossy ibis, huge numbers of kingfishers/cuckoos then the highlight .. hundreds of white pelicans....Stephanie Kimsey reports or

Some Useful bird books for Romania:
Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


Collins Bird Guide
Lars Svensson et al: Buy from or

  • Europe's best Field guide. If you only carry one field guide on a trip into Europe then this should be it. It provides all the information needed to identify any species at any time of the year, with detailed text on size, habitat, range, identification and voice. Accompanying every species entry is a distribution map and numerous illustrations to show the species in all the major plumages (male, female, immature, in flight, at rest, feeding, etc).

The Complete Guide to the Birdlife of Britain & Europe
Rob Hume, Peter Hayman (Illustrator): Buy from

  • This is quite simply the best illustrated guide to Europe's birds that I have seen. Every bird is pictured at least five times (and sometimes twenty times) in varying poses within its habitat. Seeing the birds in context, really gives this book the edge.
    More than a field guide, the book is coffee table size, and certainly deserves to be in the collection of every serious bird watcher.

Where to Watch Birds in Europe and Russia
Nigel Wheatley: Buy from

  • Over 250 major sites are treated in this book, and many more in passing from Iceland across Europe through Georgia to Ussuriland in southeast Russia. Countries, archipelagos and islands are treated alphabetically, the introduction to each being accompanied by a map showing major routes and the distribution of sites. Each site account lists the birds to be seen and how and where to find them, particularly the specialities

Lonely Planet Eastern Europe
David Stanley: Buy from or

  • This book is not as detailed as the individual Lonely Planet country guides but certainly very useful (and better value) if you are interested in visiting more than one country in the region. I have used it quite often and have not yet been disappointed. A definite improvement on the previous edition.
