BAT WATCHING IN HUNGARY
photos from our 2009 Tour
Lesser Horseshoe Bat
A mixture of Greater & Lesser Horseshoe Bats with Geoffroy's Bats in a church roof
Hazel Dormouse was one of 2 dormouse species that we saw very well.
Sightings of Honey Buzzard were good. We saw Saker Falcon & Imperial & Short-toed Eagles too!
The ancient race of Hungarian sheep add to the atmosphere of this wonderful country.
When not visiting bat roosts or it was too hot to look for birds, many butterfly species were logged. Including this Knapweed Fritillary.
