Slovakia, Poland and Belarus June-August 2005

Slovakia & Czech Republic July 2005

  • This was part of a family holiday and not a birding trip and so only gives a flavour of the birds of the two countries. We drove from England and stayed in many different locations briefly before settling in Rakovec, a small village south of Zvolen for a week.....Brendan Threlfall and Suzanna Ivanic report.

Eastern Slovakia 25-28 May, 2004

  • After this, we went westwards, and entered the Zadiel gorge. This was a beautiful, beech-clad gorge, with a stream running down in the centre. Of special interest here where a pair of White-backed Woodpeckers, 2 singing male Red-breasted Flycatchers, breeding Dippers - at least one pair with more adults present, a male Rock Bunting cleaning himself in the creek, Grey Wagtails, Hawfinches and Marsh Tits...Hasse Berglund reports.

Some Useful bird books for Slovakia:
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

  • Described by some as the best field guide in the world, and 15 years in the making. Has it been Worth the Wait?...Yes definately! If you buy just 1 book a year then make sure that its this one. Stunning drawings by the worlds finest bird illustrators..and it shows..check out the plates on tern, Skuas, and the Ducks...not forgetting the Finches and Crossbills.

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.

  • I have never found another guide that dealt with Slovakia in such a thorough manner. It has been well-researched and well-written and includes some interesting and amusing boxes on Slovak culture and history. I am thrilled that somebody has finally discovered the Slovak countryside, especially the regions in the east. As usual there is a helpful section on Slovakia's wildlife.
