Summer time


By-the-way birding, Valle Cavanata (GO): 3 Purple Herons, 2 Spotted Redshanks, ad Black-winged Stilts with fledged youngs, 1 Marsh Harrier, Common Tern (see above), at least 4 LITTLE TERNS, one Bee-eater and a Golden Oriole.
Lisert (GO): a singing Melodious Warbler and lots of Great Reed Warblers. A Coot was buidling its nest in a canal.

Local patch: seen again the TREE SPARROW in the garden, whitin the flock of House Sparrows (drinking on the ground from a puddle). Blackbird chicks already born (3 or 4), still blind. Also a Green Woodpecker today somewhere in the garden.
