South-East Romania, Dobruja is an wonderful land if you know when to visit it. Winter is one of the special seasons in Dobruja, here we can see a lot of geese, including the famous Red-breasted, White-fronted and Lesser White-fronted Goose, Whooper and Tundra Swans and many raptors and passerines. Winter is an exceptional season for birders and photographers in Dobruja.
Dobrudja is undoubtedly the best place where to see Red-breasted Geese due to the large number of birds wintering here. In November – December and February – March, almost the entire world population of Red-breasted Geese is here.
It’s an winter tour, a combination of photography and birdwatching tour. The guide will bring a scope for the entire group use, we can also borrow you binoculars if you do not have. You just bring you photo camera. If we can’t get close enough to the birds for (photo) shooting, we just enjoy their presence and watch them through binoculars or scopes.
