For two days we explore Rock Partridge habitats in the spectacular surroundings of mountain gorges, waterfalls and cliff tops. The chances of seeing and photographing the bird depend very much on the weather conditions in the mountains.
Other birds likely to be seen in the Rock Partridge areas: Golden Eagle, Short-toed Eagle, Ring Ouzel (the South-European subspecies alpinus), Water Pipit, Crag Martin, Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush,
Red-rumped Swallow, Alpine Chough, Rock Bunting, etc.
If your return flight is late in the afternoon, we can visit the Vitosha Mountain near Sofia where we can expect to find Water Pipit,Horned Lark, Spotted Nutcracker, Willow Tit, Firecrest & Goldcrest.
To reach the Rock Partridge spots it takes about one hour walking on flat or fairly steep dirt roads and trails.
