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.

We will explore the huge forests inside Sumava NP. Some of the main targets here include 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 or Ring Ouzel.

The Sumava NP hosts very interesting nocturnal birds. WE will look for them during the day but also during the night in order to have good sights on Pygmy and Tengmalm's Owls along with Long-eared, Eagle and, if lucky, Ural Owls.

Mammals are also common here. European Bison was successfully re-introduced in the area and European Elk is not rare, offering good sights on them!

Nove Mlyny is the main Czech wetland, actually a huge dump hosting a good variety of waterfowl. Here we will look for Slavonian Grebe, Black-throated Diver and Velvet Scoter among many other species. Depending on the winter, Red-necked Grebe and Snow Bunting are also present here.

In the decidious forests around we will also look for both Middle Spotted and White-backed Woodpeckers.
