What can I see in the Danube Delta in the autumn?
September: A part of the birds nesting here are leaving and we can see them gathered in large flocks preparing to migrate. A part of the northern birds migrating here are already present – we can see now the Caspian Tern, the Sandwich Tern etc. The chicks of birds leaving late have already grown older and big and we can see them. Pelicans go out fishing with their chicks and teach them to fly. You can see pelican chicks ONLY in the autumn! Water lilies are in full bloom after the scorching August heat.
October: Large flocks of birds are migrating. You can see now the most spectacular sunrises from a chromatic point of view. Nothing compares to an autumn sunrise, especially if seen from the water. Mist rises from the water early in the morning, cormorants are fishing ceaselessly, and White Pelicans are still training their chicks for their flight to Africa.
November: Geese, geese and again geese! You can see whole flocks of geese passing over the Danube Delta, as well as tardy White Pelicans, Dalmatian Pelicans, Pygmy and Great Cormorants, Ducks… BUT! Especially big birds of prey coming here for winter have already arrived or they are still passing by. There are species that one cannot see during the summer! We will certainly see many specimens of the largest bird of prey of the Danube Delta: the White-tailed Eagle.
