I get quite a few people contacted me about injured birds they have found or young birds fallen out of nests etc. If you follow the link above the staff at the
Rescue Centre, (featured on my site) will be glad to help and advize.
Bulgarian Nature showing you the beauty and diversity of Bulgaria.
Thank you for visiting my site.
After 11 years living in Bulgaria and developing a love of all the amazing nature in this incredible Country I have returned to the UK. The site will remain active for now and will hopefully continue to showcase Bulgaria and all it has to offer.
This site was set up to give me the opportunity to share with you some of the stunning scenery and amazing nature
that surrounded 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 whilst living in Bulgaria.
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 many different species of Eagles, including Golden and Imperial, 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 the area around Yambol Town, southern Bulgaria. With other shots, like the Vultures, taken just a 2 hour drive away.
Village life itself was very different to anything I had experienced before. Many older Brits have said that it reminds them of the
UK 60 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.
After starting this site I had the opportunity to work with nature first hand at the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue and Breeding Centre.
I trained to breed Falcons and worked on the Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon to Bulgaria Project. I also completed the Raptor Award for Falconry trained and handled 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. I was promoted to Supervisor and was responsible for the day to day running of the breeding and visitors site.
A special category has been set up to show some of the birds I was privileged to work with.
Once again thank you for taking the time to visit my site and I hope you enjoy it.
