|Wallcreeper Tichodroma muraria|
|Velika Dolina - the biggest doline in the Karst (164 m deep) with the river Reka running on the bottom. One Wallcreeper was usually seen on the large cliff faces to the right.|
|The village of Betanja, with part of the "Wallcreeper cliffs" and mt. Snežnik in the distance.|
|The Snežnik plateau. Snežnik actually means "snowy mountain"...and today it was.|
Crisp, sunny and cold day on the Karst. I visited the limestone cliffs at the Škocjan caves (Škocjanske jame) which produced two WALLCREEPERS Tichodroma muraria
, four Ravens Corvus corax
, a few Rock Buntings Emberiza cia
and little else. The area is a known wintering site for Wallcreepers, where there's a lot of good habitat for the species. Actually a Wallcreeper winter paradise.
