Hi, my name is Oliwier Myka. I come from Białystok, a city located exactly between two top European spots for nature lovers- Biebrza Marshes and Białowieża Forest. Maybe that’s why I became a naturalist!

Since the age of thirteen I have been birding and exploring this North Eastern region of Poland.

Over the years, I have taken part in ornithological surveys of several species in the Białowieża Forest studying the biology of Pygmy Owl and rare woodpeckers. I have done similar work on the Biebrza Marshes researching the populations of Curlews, Great Snipes and other meadow-breeding waders. I am also an active member of Polish Society for Bird Protection (PTOP).

In 2015 I decided to make use of my field experience and to become a wildlife guide. Besides my independent career I regularly work as a local guide for Naturetrek– a leading UK nature holiday company. Companies such as WildWings, Birding Ecotours, Spainbirds, ACE Cultural Tours or WildPoland have also used my services and experience. I am also a licensed Biebrza National Park guide.

Personally, I have Master’s degree in biology, I am a fan of football (and regularly support my local team called Jagiellonia), love maps and Podlasie.

Welcome Wildlife Enthusiast! I would like to invite you to visit NE Poland in autumn 2021. No crowds, autumnal vibes and pristine nature. Wonderful time of year.

If you are a group of at least two then don’t hesitate and book a private 4-days-tour!
