Weather conditions: Clear windless weather all day, temps ranging from 11°C to 19°C+
Highlights of the day: Little bustard, Collared pratincole, Great reed warbler and Reed warbler (both heard and seen), Purple swamphen (out in the open again!), Black-winged stilt (good close views), Caspian tern, Purple heron, Lesser kestrel…
Starting with superb views of a displaying male Little bustard in full view, the day just got better and better!
With interesting birds in every direction and new ones appearing every couple of minutes – the excitement was exhilarating. We topped our list at a more than respectable 75 species and had a really good day – and I suspect everyone slept well!
