LESSER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE and GOLDEN PLOVER











Škocjanski zatok: the juv. *LESSER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE* was still present today in the freshwater marsh, showing well (see the photos above) . A video is available here.
Another interesting sighting today, was a EUROPEAN GOLDEN PLOVER within a flock of 13 Lapwings and Curlews. It's quite a rare bird for the area (pics above); another video here. Also many Greenshanks, 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 female Goldeneye, a male Stonechat and some Meadow Pipits.
