Tours

Ócsa Bird Ringing Tour (5th September, Saturday)

Ócsa is a small town 30 km from Budapest, which is famous for its Bird Ringing Station and its unique turf bog area, the Turjánvidék. The planned trip consists of two parts. First, we visit the Bird Ringing Station, where everyone can get familiar with the process of bird monitoring such as collecting birds from net lines in different vegetation types, examining the species- and sex-specific characteristics of birds, checking their condition and ringing them. After that, we have a nice trip following a nature trail near the station, discovering the flora and fauna of this special, protected area and eating our lunch in the pleasant natural environment.
