With a few hours free in the morning, we set off to bird at the Altkonig area in the Taunus mountain range, barely 20minutes from our hotel, the Schlosshotel Kronberg. This as well as my previous post on birding Schwanheimer Dunen was based on the most useful suggestions made by Jonas from the German birding site bird-lens http://www.bird-lens.com/ It’s a great resource and made my visit to Germany much more interesting. Many thanks!
Driving up the gravelly and partially metalled road leading up to the Altkonig, we finally got to an area where there was much logging being done with many piles of logs piled up around. Google maps brings you here.
Numerous tiny birds were singing and zipping around…difficult to shoot!
We descended the hill after a couple of hours and were back in Kronberg in 20min. This was a great scenic location for a couple of hours early morning birding in the summer. Highly recommended.
