Destinations: Letea - Romania

This remote village in the north-east of the Danube Delta in Romania is only accessible by boat. Just behind the village is a large salt-lake, which dries out in sumer. There is a colony of Collared Pratincoles here and Kentish Plover. The village itself has resident Syrian Woodpeckers and Little Owls. On passage, when the surrounds of the village are wet, waders drop in. The route to Letea is via lily-clad and reed-lined channels where Little Crake, Red-necked Grebes and Ferruginous Ducks, amongst many others, breed.
