Kis Balaton. A secret place

I startet early in the morning with my travel to the kis balaton in Hungary. I will need about 3.5 hours to get there, so I started at 1 am. I arrived at 5 am near the kis balaton, but stopped on a little channel. It was stil pitty dark. Suddenly I heared screaming just about a view meter from me away. There I saw my first eurasian otter in my life and could take some pictures with 2500 iso. 

One more rare bird on picture, also the first in my life, is the grey-headed woodpecker male and female. So it was an very succesfull trip!

The next two days I traveled around and below you see the collection.

Photo trip with Pusztawildlife

With Pusztawildlife an dutch organized photohide company near the Hortobagy, I spend a view days to discover the Hortobay and their habitat around. I traveled to lake Tisza and into the deep pusta landscape to explorer the wildlife. My first go was to find the eurasian Hoopoe the eurasian Golden Oriole the European Roller and the Wryneck. The best time to travel this region is from mid May to end July, but in July it could be get very hot with temperatures around the 40C. The company can organize your trip to the Tisza and into the Hortobagy. They have a very good experience and has a lot off different photohides to rent. Here you find the domain to check it out: www.pusztawildlife.com
