The Publisher’s View: This DVD introduces you to the best birding sites in Hungary and shows you many of the country’s most exciting birds.
British birder Dave Gosney takes you to areas of plains such as The Hortobágy, several of Hungary’s fabulous fishpond systems, and the best wooded areas of Zemplen and Bukk in search of birds such as Imperial Eagle, Ural Owl, Saker Falcon, Red-footed Falcon, Great Bustard, White-backed Woodpecker, Long-legged Buzzard, Ferruginous Duck, Golden Oriole, Roller, River Warbler and many more, including a couple of unexpected rarities.
– Learn about the sites – find out what it’s really like to go birding in 15 sites; get an idea of what birds you might see and how close you could get to them.
– Enjoy the birds – sit back and enjoy footage of over a hundred species, including some at exceptionally close-range, all filmed using high-definition digital video cameras.
– Helpful tips – find out more about the sites and their birds, including hints on how to find birds such as Marsh Warbler, Penduline Tit, Black Woodpecker and Collared Flycatcher by their songs or calls.
This DVD has been produced in conjunction with a book of the same title so it’s easy to find out all you need about every site in the film. The DVD is ideal for showing you each place and its birds and the book is perfect for giving you lots more information, including detailed maps, in a portable format – together they make the complete guide.
Fatbirder View:What more can I say… this is up to Dave’s normal, very high standard. Great DVD and very useful book of maps for the field… the perfect combo!There were several sites I was not aware of and may I’ve visited seeing the terrific avifauna that Hungary has to offer. Its always excellent to be taken somewhere familiar and to learn from Dave’s quiet style and bottomless knowledge. I recommend Hungary to anyone who hasn’t been and anyone going will want to watch this DVD first and take the booklet with them, its travelling mass is tiny, but its weight in information massive.
