Ukraine

Europe / Ukraine

Ukraine is a young, relatively unknown country that was formed after the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Black Sea coast and the Crimean Peninsula are one of the most important migration stopovers for many water birds and waders. Huge steppes, extensive marshes and coastal lagoons, rolling limestone hills provide wonderful landscapes and rich habitats for migrants and breeding birds. Large flocks of White Pelicans, Broad-billed and Marsh Sandpipers, Great Black-headed and Slender-billed Gulls are not an uncommon sight. Breeding birds include such Eastern specialities as Demoiselle Crane, Saker and Red-footed Falcons, Pied Wheatear, Paddyfield Warbler, Rose-coloured Starling and Black-headed Bunting.
