Residents of Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Varna and Veliko Tarnovo will once again have the opportunity to participate in observing and photographing birds in the wild. The occasion is the European Birdwatch days, which take place in Bulgaria  on October 1 and 2. The initiative is of the international organization "Bird Life International", and at the local level its organizer is the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB), which for the 29th time organizes European Birdwatch days in Bulgaria.

All nature lovers are welcome to participate, but the first rule conservationists teach people is how to observe birds in nature without disturbing them. The reason is that most of the wild birds are sensitive to the environment and cannot adapt everywhere.

Listen to the daily news from Bulgaria presented in "Bulgaria Today" podcast, available in Spotify.
