Eastern Europe offers birdwatchers a chance to step back in time to an era when the countryside was relatively unexploited and still teeming with birds. Nowhere else in Europe is there such a profusion of small birds, especially warblers, flycatchers and woodpeckers, which are superbly captured on this unique DVD-video. This is the story of an expedition to Poland and Hungary that captures the richness of birdwatching in these countries, from the steppe-like plains of the Hortobagy to the wild expanses of the Biebrza marshes and including the lush forests of the Bialowieska. Eastern Europe has never been more accessible; enjoy it now while it's still wild and unspoilt.
