Poland 18 July- 30 July

The last few weeks were quite busy (going abroad, bird ringing etc) which meant I did not have the time to keep up with the blog. I will update it as soon as possible.
From the 18th of July till the 30th of July I was in Poland with my father, watching birds in the Biebrza and Bialowieza area. Although it was late in the season and plenty of birds were difficult to see we managed to see all the species on the ''wanted'' list. I will just give you a list of the higlights + photos. A trip report will follow later.
So the highlights included:
Aquatic Warblers
Black Storks
Barred Warbler
Common Rosefinch (lifer, hehe) 
Corncrake
Collared Flycatcher
European Roller
Great Snipe (lifer)
Greater spotted eagle (lifer)
Grey-headed Woodpecker
Hazel Grouse (lifer)
Lesser Spotted eagle
Middle spotted woodpeckers
Nutcracker
Ortolan Bunting
Penduline tits
Red-breasted flycatcher 
Three-toed Woodpecker (lifer)
Thrush Nightingale
White-winged black terns 
White backed Woodpecker
+ plenty more, in addition we recorded a total of 151 species in Poland in 2 weeks time.
