Including a new page "Rescue Centre 5" and many more pictures throughout.
Apologies to anyone who has emailed me but I have just found a huge amount of emails (325) that I didnt know about hidden in the back office. I will try to reply to the not too old ones as soon as possible.
Thanks for all the positive comments.
Bulgarian Nature showing you the beauty and diversity of Bulgaria.
Thank you for visiting my site.
This site has been set up to give me the opportunity to share with you some of the stunning scenery and amazing nature
that surrounds me every day.
Many people have asked me what Bulgaria is like and hopefully, the images you see here will give you an insight to this amazing
I am not a professional photographer and only developed an interest after moving to Bulgaria in December 2006 with my wife.
There is so much here to see and the country is incredibly diverse, from the highest mountains where you can see for miles, to golden beaches.
It is possible to walk for hours and not see another soul and your view will be unspoiled by buildings.
As for the nature, Bulgaria has over 425 species of bird either resident or visitor, like the Storks, Bee eaters, Golden Orioles,
Vultures and Imperial Eagles just to name a few. Bulgaria is a perfect holiday destination for keen bird watchers.
It would also be of great interest to anyone with an interest in flora and fauna with its stunning array of wild flowers and insects.
And of course if you are a photographer, whether professional or for hobby, the opportunities are endless, as you will see here.
The majority of photos have been taken within a 3 village radius of General Inzovo near Yambol Town, southern Bulgaria. With other shots, like the Vultures, taken just a 2 hour drive away.
Village life itself is very different to anything I have experienced before. Many older Brits have said that it reminds them of the
UK 50 years ago. Most homes have chickens and goats etc and life is lived at a slower pace.
I have tried, where possible, to identify the various birds, insects and plants that I have seen.
I apologize if I have made any errors and would ask that if you can help with the identification process it would be great to be
able to put names to everything.
I hope you like my site and would appreciate any feedback via my contact page. Whether you have a question or general comment
or can help with naming, I look forward to hearing from you.
Since starting this site I have had the opportunity to work with nature first hand at the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue and Breeding Centre. I have trained to breed Falcons and work on the Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon to Bulgaria Project. I am also newly qualified to do Falconry and now handle birds for visitors to the Centre to see. As well as feeding all kinds of different species and working with the Vultures etc at the Centre. Last year I was promoted to Supervisor and now I am responsible for the day to day running of the breeding and visiors site.
A special category has been set up to show some of the birds I am privileged to work with.
Once again thank you for taking the time to visit my site and I hope you enjoy it.
