Białowieża Forest & Bierbza Marshes

Set in the heart of Europe, Poland is a multifaceted country with Europe's most ancient forests, large unregulated river valleys, agricultural lands where horse-drawn carts negotiate country lanes and beautiful medieval towns.

Much of the countryside is still low-intensity farmlands teeming with such birds as White Stork, Corn Crake, Skylark and many other species. There are several national parks in the country including the most famous, Białowieża Forest, home to the last deciduous woods in Europe which have never been managed by man. Besides many woodpeckers, owls and songbirds large mammals, like European Bison inhabit the forest.

Biebrza Marsh is the largest national park in Poland incorporating vast marshes, wet meadows and alluvial woods. The park is home to populations of Aquatic Warbler, Greater Spotted Eagle and Great Snipe, as well as Elk and Wolf.

Southern Poland is maybe less visited by birders, though the High Tatras, the Pieninski or the Bieszczadzki National Parks along the Slovakian border offer much in terms of wildlife and scenery and can easily be included in individual itineraries upon request.
