Winter predator


The Great Grey Shrike is still around on the grassland out of Sežana. One Meadow Pipit, Goldcrest and 1 Rock Bunting also in the area.
Not much to report from 10 (by-the-way) minutes at Škocjanski zatok today: 1 Water Rail (flushed), 1 Green Sandpiper, Reed Bunting, Cetti's Warbler showing well (ringed bird!), Shoveler, 1 Snipe.
Hopefully more to come on Friday!

Local patch: quite a movement of birds in the garden with mixed flocks of Great and Blue Tits visiting the tube-feeder, some Chaffinches on the ground, 1 Goldcrest on the pine-tree and a Chiffchaff. Also Blackcap calling in the bushes and several Black Redstarts on the roofs.
