Early Spring Czech Republic

Bohemia is the most famous of the different regions inside the Czech Republic. Here, an impressive boreal forests covers thousands of hectares and include some primarian spots.

Along this tour we will explore some natural areas in Bohemia, but we will focus on the forest especialities living inside Sumava National Park and other wood lands.

Day 1. 

Meet and wellcome in Prague airport or in another point previously agreed. Transfer to Sumava National Park. Before,  we will do a stop in the way to spot some birds, including Grey-headed Woodpecker as star species. 

Days 2, 3 & 4.

We will explore the huge forests inside Sumava NP. Some of the main targets here include Spotted Nutcracker, Black Grouse, Three-toed Woodpecker and Black Woodpecker. Along these days we will visit Hazel Grouse & Capercaillie roosting places, both species being, in average, really tricky! 

Other species here include Willow Tit, Common Crossbill, Ring Ouzel and Northern Grey Shrike.

The Sumava NP hosts some good populations of interesting owls. During the trip we will look for them during the day but we will also do some crecuspular explorations in order to look for Pygmy and Tengmalm's Owls along with Long-eared and, if lucky, Ural Owls.

Mammals are also common here. European Bison was successfully re-introduced in the area.
