Bieszczady National Park

Bieszczady National Park is the third largest National Park in Poland, located in the extreme south-east corner of the country, bordering Slovakia and Ukraine.Ural owl pictured is the star species with other birds of prey much in evidence.
Covering the highest areas of the Polish part of the Bieszczady Mountains,the Park was created in 1973. At that time it covered only 59.55 square kilometres (22.99 sq mi), but over the years it was enlarged four times. The last enlargements took place in 1996, when the Park incorporated the former villages of Bukowiec, Beniowa and Carynskie, and in 1999, when the former villages of Dzwiniacz, Tarnawa and Sokoliki were added.
About 80% of the area is covered in forest and animal life thrives with endangered bears, wolves, wildcats, wild boars, beavers, otters and lynxes as well as deer, moose and European bisons.
For visiting birdwatchers, the highlight will be the vast numbers of raptors including Golden , Spotted, Short-toed and Booted eagle. Add to this European Honey Buzzard, Goshawk, Pygmy owl, Eagle owl and Poland's largest concentration of Ural owl, the area is not to be missed.

Several species of woodpecker can also be expected with Black, Grey-headed, White-backed, Three-toed and Syrian .Higher mountain pastures expect breeding alpine birds including Alpine accentor, Water Pipit, and Rock thrush.
