Birding in the mature slovenian forest of Trnovo produced some good birds as usual. Three highlights in complete daylight were a URAL OWL, seen very well; perching on beeches and spruces plus other 3x heard, a very confident PYGMY OWL and a *WHITE-BACKED WOODPECKER* - only heard. Also the first Redwing for the season feeding on rowan berries. Then two Sparrowhawks (one mobbing the Ural Owl!), some Skylarks flying over, Grey Wagtail, Dunnock, Wren, Song Thrush - 3x, Mistle Thrush, Goldcrest, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Willow Tit, Crested Tit, Eurasian Treecreeper. Many mixed flocks of finches including: Bramblings, Chaffinches, Linnets (few), Siskins, some Bullfinches, 3x Hawfinches, Crossbills.
Mammals were only one black morph Red Squirrel and 3x Roe Deers.
