Dust in my eye

Today was just like yesterday: a great day! We had good numbers of birds with the bulk being Chiffchaffs again.  Amongst the chiffchaffs we had other cool species too. I will name them in the list below. Raptor migration was allright, with 62 Steppe Eagles, 9 Steppebuzzards, 1 Black Stork and 3 Pallas' Gulls. Quails were conspicuous wiht several flushed during net rounds.
