When Doris met Boris :-)

I just got the recommendation of my recent guest Doris Hammer, and I would like to share it with you in German and also an English version. As I promise her I send her a photo from our trip.

 

Ich war mit Boris Belchev zwei Tage im September 2015 im Gebiet Ventes Ragas (Litauen) auf Vogelbeobachtungstour.

Wir fuhren mit seinem All-Rad Auto und er hatte ausser seiner Fotoausrüstung auch sein Swarovski Spektiv zur besseren Beobachtung dabei.

Boris ist ein kompetenter, zuverlässiger und erfahrener Guide der die Gegend wie seine Westentasche kennt und innerhalb von Sekunden die Vögel identifizieren kann, ohne dabei arrogant oder überheblich zu wirken. Man merkt ihm an, er ist mit Liebe und Arrangement bei der Sache.

 

Ich habe durch ihn, sehr viele verschiedene Vögel zu sehen bekommen und konnte sie auch identifizieren z.b. Kiebitze, Kiebitzregenpfeifer, Seeadler, Fischadler, Bussarde, Kraniche, Gänse, Schwäne, Enten, Blaumeisen, Kohlmeisen Schwarzspecht usw.

Zum Abschluss endeckten wir noch die Brandseeschwalbe, die hier in der Gegend gar nicht vorkommt. Die Freude war natürlich gross und wurde sofort der Vogelstadion Ventes/Ragas mitgeteilt.

Ich kann Boris Belchev nur jedem empfehlen, der einen seriösen und kompetenten Guide sucht.

Ich freue mich jetzt schon auf die nächste Vogelbeobachtungstour mit ihm.

I was on bird watching tour for two days with Boris Belchev in September 2015 in the territory of Nemunas Delta, Lithuania. We were using his all-wheel drive car and a Swarovski spotting scope for better view of the birds.
Boris is a competent, reliable and experienced guide who knows the area like the back of his pocket. He identify the birds very quickly and correct, without being arrogant or overbearing. You feel that he makes his works with love and arrangement.

We see a lot of different birds and could identify: Northern Lapwings, Grey Plover, White-tailed Eagles, Osprey, Sparrowhawk, Cranes, Graylag Geese, Mute and Whooper Swans, Ducks, Blue and Great Tits, Black Woodpecker and etc.
At the end we saw the Sandwich terns, which does not occur often here, only at the coast.
I can recommend Boris Belchev for people, who are looking for a reputable and knowledgeable birding guide.
I’m already looking forward to the next birding tour with him.

My dream project is getting bigger and bigger ;-)

After both hides are already installed, I did some improvements and painting on the hides and the surrounding areas, it was time for observations and testing. We had installed chairs, painted the floor and special one way glasses, embrasures for the lenses, and the mounts for the tripod heads.

20150914_15150720150914_151452

We started artificial feeding of the birds of prey with fish waste from the fish-factory, as a result I got some more White-tailed Eagle photos:
Kintai Birding Paradise - Test Day 2

Soon I got visit from other birds of prey – few Western Marsh-harriers show up this afternoon and make their best to entertain me:
Kintai Birding Paradise - Test Day 2

Before the end of the second test day I had another visitor – a Red Fox showed up just before sunset:

Kintai Birding Paradise - Test Day 2

 

Next weekend it was last gathering for the National BirdID field course’s participants so I must postpone the testing for the next week. And after me and the boss son in Law Adomas brought some of my ideas forward with bringing some dead wood at the areas of the first two hides, I used my wetsuit to get the decoration to the desired location in front of hide Nr.1 After hard day of work,  I decided to spent the night in the hide. I had a great weather as you can see:
Project Kintai Birding Paradise 2015

After all I managed to fell a sleep despite the noisy neighbors – a few thousand Greylag Geese and my old friends the Raccoon dogs I woke up with the first rays of sun light and two Grey Herons made my day with their air show up:

Project Kintai Birding Paradise 2015

We had new visitors of the hide Nr1 area, a pair of Magpies make me happy, as I managed to get my dream shot of the Magpie flying straight against me:

Project Kintai Birding Paradise 2015

Next days I was busy finishing the painting of the floor in the big hide Nr2 and I got visitor a friend from Vilnius came for the weekend. I couldn’t arrange any bite for the raptors, so we decided to made it old school and took some photos from the car as the paint was still wet and we couldn’t use any of the hides. We were lucky to take some photos of the White-tailed Eagles and we visited the Rusnė Island and just before our adventure was about to finish we got lucky strike – a bull elk show up while we were crossing my favorite forest:

Rusne Island and more...

Next week started with more painting job, as I got more paint, I finished the large hide and putted final touches on the design of the hide Nr1. The construction of the two new hides was already getting to its end so it was time to choose the final location of the drinking station, I made good choice with two options, but later I visited  the area with the brother of Mr. Višinskas – Gintaras. I was very disappointed as the area I chose earlier was not on their property, but there is always better place. So after all we chose the area for both new hides, the Drinking station was positioned in a the orchards and the last hide for this season is still not finished, but I got permission to put it next to the fish pond with permanent low level of water and reed bed, while I was choosing the area for the hide, a Great Bittern flew over the reeds, which is very promising.  Next days were more or less painting and nerve breaking to got the drinking station project getting “green light”. And finally I got the good news we have the hide on location and the base of the drinking pool ready. The bad news it was flipped opposite to my instruction, so I got half a day hard work on my own. I shaped the pool and flip the deep part of the pool nearer to the hide, an island made for passerines was just 3 m from the hide. And after our construction team made their job it was only one task to be done – we needed to fill the pool with water:

20150918_145639 20150918_165050    After all we were ready by end of the day, 6 m long and 3 m wide, with 4 tons of water capacity we had first ever drinking station ready to attract birds. Even we were still not finished the decoration I stayed at the hide for the next two hours. We had pretty good diversity of birds in the surroundings, 12 species in two hours. Still missing the decoration, but my buddy Povilas and me were ready to fix this next day. After collecting the needed tree trunks, I got the vehicle to be able to bring it to the location. Povilas was impressed by the improvements and we decided to come back after we bring some more decoration in front of the hide Nr.1, which I will test again next week. Here is the result of the hard work we did last two days and it needs more to be done:

20150919_162750But even so we got some new interesting observations and first “touch downs”, that I will upload next week. We are planning to make one more test this time in the morning tomorrow morning so keep follow me in my blog, FB page and on Flickr:

The story of my dream…

After I moved to Lithuania, I travel a lot – Finnmark and Central Norway 2011, Morocco 2012, in Hungary I visited Bence Mate’s hides in 2012, in 2013-2014 I worked in Bulgarian company, but it was very disappointing as
I saw how people doesn’t respect the nature and just use it like it is something that belongs to them. The dream start forming in my head to start a project that will benefit, both local business, nature and specially birds, to be something that never been made here in Lithuania. I was busy with the university in past 5 years so after I graduated it was time for action. Some lucky circumstances and hard work made my dreams come true. And today 1st of September 2015 our first two hides were transported to the areas I chose previously. I really want to thank you my Lithuanian family for the support, and “Kintai LTD” president Mr. Višinskas that he approved my project and fund the building of the hides and let me chose the locations for them in the territory of Kintai Fish-ponds.
So I went to see the position of the both new hides. One was already on site, the other one was just arriving.
The big hide positioning After short talk with the owner of the ponds and cup of coffee it was time to spent my first 60 min in the hide, I took a photo of it from the bridge and went down. I was not expecting any results as the birds were flushed during the installation of the first hide. There were more to do on it as the special glasses were not yet installed. So I just wanted to see what will show up. After some time few Northern Lapwings arrived, followed by White Wagtails and lots of Mallards, Gadwall and Greylag Geese. A Common Snipe join them and I was just aiming at a distant Grey Heron, when suddenly all the geese and ducks flushed, I couldn’t believe my eyes, I got in my viewfinder an adult White-tailed Eagle, just 60 min. after I sat in the newly installed hide without any hopes I got my best ever shots of this gorgeous bird of prey. As it was ringed I called the ringer from Kaunas Zoological Museum and  I found out that the bird was ringed in 2008, I still haven’t got the full file about it.

BirdID WP Bulgaria 2015 – Day 9

We started with a morning walk. During the night storm passed over and there was a North wind blowing. So not many song birds were heard. But good wind direction and soon I spotted a superb male Red-footed Falcon. We also heard Barred and Eastern Olivaceus Warblers, Lesser Spotted and  Syrian Woodpeckers, Black-headed Bunting were seen too. A Roe Deer run by the group. We walked back for breakfast and had a Sand Martin on the wires. Soon afterwards we sat in the van and headed towards the furthest destination on our route the bird paradise place – Durankulak lake.
Here we had a short glimpse at Paddyfield Warbler, Bearded Tit and Temmincks Stint. Later on we were lucky to see many more birds including 4 Red-footed Falcons, Black, White-Winged, Whiskered and a superb Gull-billed Tern flying over us. Little Egret, Squacco and Purple Herons. Some waders were seen too: Curlew and Wood Sandpipers, Redshank, Greenshak, Ruff and Sanderlings.
Some of the participants said that this is the best birding place they had ever been. After all we saw here more than 40 species. We had some good birding and we had to check the camping where as usual we found some interesting stuff Red-breasted, Pied, Spotted, Semi- and Collared Flycatchers. Also Willow Warbler and Blackcap. Afterwards we headed to Shabla for lunch and to the next last major stop at our field trip Shablenska Tuzla. Here we started with a short walk around the camping too.

We went by the lake at distance we could see many Ferruginous Ducks, Mute Swan pair with 12 recently hatched chicks, Garganey male, Little Grebe, a Citrine Wagtail flew over, a Savi’s Warbler was singing it’s trilling song from the opposite shore. We try to get closer but it was not to be seen. After all we headed to the beach for some sea watching. We took of shoes and some even got to the sea for a extreme dip in still cold waters of Black Sea. It was time to drove back to the hotel.

BirdID WP Bulgaria 2015 – Day 8

We started with an early sunrise walk with few of the students at 5:30 a.m. we enjoy it and soon others joined. We continue with some see watching until it was time for breakfast.  Nothing new was seen, but it was still nice morning. After breakfast we headed to the cape Kaliakra for some birding. We were welcomed by the Pied Wheatear, female Black-headed Buntings and a superb male Red-breasted Flycatcher. In the sea not much to find, but still worth the effort. We spent 3 hours birding in the area and headed back to the next area at Bolata PA. We checked the sea again and headed to the valley. We had a great view of Great Reed Warbler, Golden Oriol, Common Cuckoo and heard a Little Grebe. The weather suddenly changed and we were able to get back to the van just before the rain started. So we headed for lunch. We spent some time in the restaurant and soon the weather quickly improved and we drove to very nice steppe area, here we had a great view at Stone Curlew, Long-legged Buzzard, Woodchat Shrike, Kestrel and Golden Oriol. This was a road to the resort Rusalka so we checked the sea and a lagoon once again. Nothing special, but as weather improved we had one more walk to the area around the hotel. We looked specially for Mediterranean Shearwater for Hakun as he was about to leave earlier…
