Wallcreeper photography in Bulgaria

Wallcreepers are superb birds to observe and photograph. Unfortunately they are ever so difficult being either too high, or in too dark places. There is a traditional place in Bulgaria where I take my birdwatching and photography groups to at least this lovely bird. In certain time of the year the birds can be photographed. Some people say this is one of the best sites in Europe where the birds can be observed just by the road.

Here are a few of my shots.

At the end of May, I spent a day at lake Kerkini with a group of British photographers. Here a few images from my trip there that I finally managed to select and post-process.

Here is the description of the day that I posted during the trip.
