|My first Yellow-browed Warbler Phylloscopus inornatus
|Siberian waif in the hand
|Checking the ID...
|...and the wing formula
Apart from the main target of the twitch I saw an Avocet Recurvirostra avosetta from the bar and 4 overflying Swallows Hirundo rustica. I didn't even bother too much to check the area from the main hide. I don't like smelly wetlands full of people anymore.
Other birds of note earlier this week included a PALLID SWIFT Apus pallidus over my house and a Great Grey Shrike Lanius excubitor at Škocjanski zatok. Also quite a lot of late-autumn movement in the form of Song Thrushes Turdus philomelos everywhere, Bramblings Fringilla montifringilla & Siskins Carduelis spinus going overhead and so on. A Whinchat Saxicola rubetra and a few Reed/Marsh Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus/palustris at Škocjanski zatok were the only remaining summer migrants, along with the Swallows.
