Destinations: Betliar Manor - Slovakia
The grounds of Betliar Manor cover over 80 acres and host several species of woodpecker, Crested Tit and Hawfinch all year round. In spring they are joined by a range of migrants such as Wryneck. In winter there are often flocks of thrushes, finches and Waxwings. The manor is a popular tourist site at weekends and on public holidays so it might be best to visit mid-week. Betliar lies by the village of the same name about 5km north of Roznava.
