St. Martins Therme & Lodge published a wall calendar with my photos again this year. It features some of the lodge's animals as well as wild species from the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel national park. The calendar is available exclusively at the lodge.
I have finished two new posters, illustrated by Szabolcs Kókay & Márton Zsoldos again and published by the Energie- und Umweltagentur Niederösterreich (eNu).
They show rare and typical animals and plants of two endangered habitat types: dry grassland and fens in the state of Lower Austria.
Three new posters are out! Szabolcs Kókay did the amazing illustrations again.
Totally new are Feldvögel/farmland birds and Waldvögel/woodland birds and the popular Gartenvögel/garden birds has been redesigned.
The posters can be bought (soon) e.g. at Schwegler, St. Martins Spa & Lodge or the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel national park information center.
The April issue of "Der Falke - Journal für Vogelbeobachter" features an article I wrote about birding in the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel region. You can read it here.
Coming soon: The new St. Martins Therme & Lodge wall calendar
2016, featuring 13 of my images of both wildlife and typical farm animals of the Seewinkel region. The cover photo was the latest addition to the final selection, taken at sunrise, just two weeks
ago on the lodge's pastures. It features the Austrian White Donkeys Freddy, Franz and Heck. This rare, cream-coloured and blue-eyed breed was kept as a decorative pet, mostly in the 17th and 18th
centuries within the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
The calendar is available in a week or so, exclusively at St. Martins.
Unter dem Titel "Unsere Gartenvögel" (A6, 64 S.) habe ich in der Reihe "Das große kleine Buch" des Servus Verlag ein kleines Büchlein verfasst. Es ist u.a. im Buchhandel, sowie in den Filialen der Post erhältlich.
The short report of the latest trip to the Po Delta (in German) is online here.
I'm currently enjoying the fabulous birds of the Seewinkel with a group of BirdWatch Ireland. See a photo of tonight below, taken from the terrace of our hotel. White Storks are apparently doing well despite the recent period of cold and rainy weather (which changed into a veritable heat wave yesterday). The depicted pair on the main square of Illmitz raises three chicks and we've seen plenty of (so far) successful pairs in Marchegg today.
