Autumn migration of shorebirds on the Böddi-szék

In the past three month a lot of species have been appeared on the Böddi-szék because of the favourable water conditions. Sporadic and rare birds could have been observed as well.

Between August and November the majority of shorebird species occurring in Hungary appeared on the salt lake. Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta), Northern Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus), Ruff (Philomachus pugnax), Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola), Dunlin (Calidris alpina) and Curlew Sandpiper (Calidris ferruginea) occurred in highest number.

Few individuals of the nationally rare Broad-billed Sandpiper (Limicola falcinellus), Red Knot (Calidris canutus), Sanderling (Calidris alba) and Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus) have been appeared as well.


This species diversity was due to the good water conditions and high nutrition content of the water.
