Spring is definitely the best season to visit the Danube Delta.
Nothing compares to a trip to the Danube Delta when the nature breaks through to another one year adventure. The vegetation bursts and at the same time the weather becomes warmer, migratory birds return to their roosting sites and many other Northern species can be seen during their migration, the water level is generally high offering an unusual show of flooded forests in which fish swarm to find a place to spawn.
Ever since March the vegetation on the banks starts coming to life timidly, while leaves start to appear on trees, as well as grass and spring flowers on the soil.
In April one can enjoy a show of shades of yellow, as the blooming of grey willows is closely followed by the blooming of yellow irises. The first water plants start to appear.
In May everything is green already and the common reed and reed mace are growing. In the second half of May water lilies are blooming and the banks are already full of spring flowers.
All birds are in high spirits, both those that stayed for the winter in the Danube Delta and those coming here to roost or are just passing through. Males already have their nuptial plumage on, which is the most spectacular plumage of the entire year. Their entire interest is directed towards mating and building their nests and we can get much closer to them than usual in order to see them better and study their behaviour or photograph them. The stars of the Delta, the pelicans, are also present: the common pelican coming from Africa, hungry now, gather in large scoops to feed and the Dalmatian pelicans already bring food to their small chicks that have hatched.
One can see about 200 bird species in the Danube Delta during the spring, i.e. during their migration.
A trip to the Danube Delta in the spring is definitely going to be a revelation for you on the image of the Danube Delta, as it is different from how one knows it from books and stories.
