Destinations: Enisala - Romania

The village of Enisala lies in eastern Romania in the Dobrudja region. Tulcea and the Danube Delta are less than an hour to the north by local roads and the town of Babadag just a few minutes to the west. Enisala is easy to locate from a distance as it lies by an impressive ruined fort that overlooks the vast Razelm lagoon. A good mix of birds can be seen here from spring through summer into autumn as there are reedbeds by Razelm, fish-ponds nearby and grassy stepp and crop fields around the fort. Highlights are Long-legged Buzzard, Levant Sparrowhawk, Tawny Pipit, Bee-eater and in some years Rose-coloured Starlings nest.
