Ural Mountains

Branta Tours is now giving you the chance to visit the famed Ural Mountains for those Eastern Palearctic specialties you could once only dream of

Owls abound with Great Grey, Northern Hawk, Tengmalms, Ural and Pygmy on offer and then there are the waders with Terek Sandpiper, Marsh Sandpiper, Great Snipe, Dotterel all breeding.
