Hungarian Spring

We’ve just concluded our first full day in Hungary, having arrived yesterday lunch-time, on the very efficient Wizz Air flight from Luton to Debrecen. We’re staying with Tibor & Orsi again, at their absolutely lovely Bibic Eco Lodge. Today was mostly an orientation day for Bob & Sue and a chance to purchase our National Park permits. The weather has been on the cool side with intermittent showers but still we’ve had some good birds and seen over a hundred species already. We’re just about to change for dinner, have a beer and plan tomorrow’s excursion.
