Destinations: Fruska Gora - Serbia
Fruska Gora is a scenic upland area in northern Serbia, just south of Novi Sad and about an hour north-west of Belgrade. It is fairly easy to explore and bird and, being a popular recreation area, is well equipped with places to stay. Much of Fruska Gora is a National Park. Birds include Eastern Imperial and Booted Eagles, Honey Buzzard, Goshawk, Saker Falcon, Black, Green, Syrian and Middle Spotted Woodpeckers, Hoopoe, Golden Oriole, Collared and Red-breasted Flycatchers and Rock, Ortolan and Black-headed Buntings. The latter the most northerly breeding pairs in Europe. Photo by Katarina Paunovic.
