Raptor Migration Watch
The Batumi bottleneck is one of the most important birdwatching sites in Eastern Europe, where migratory birds concentrate a route to Africa and southern Asia. The bottleneck occurs at the location where the mountains of the Lesser Caucasus, covered with humid relic forest, descend to the Black Sea coast. The density of migrating birds that can be watched from the site makes it one of the biggest sites after (Veracruz Mexico and Eilat, Israel). Each fall thousands of birds of prey soaring in thermals migrate through the site.
