Eurotrip 2019, Day 29: Shipka

Last day in Shipka here before we start heading back.  I covered the fields and forest east of the village again. Highlights included 4 Honey Buzzards and Black and Grey-headed Woodpecker. Ebird list HERE.

In the afternoon we celebrated my birthday in advance by going to a local fish restaurant (had Catfish and chips). The restaurant was on the edge of a lake. We had Green Sandpiper, 2 Little Egret, 1 Black Stork and 3 Grass Snake. 

 Tree Pipit
 Spotted Flycatcher- no shortage of these in these parts
 Male Redstart- the pale secondary panel could possibly suggest samamisicus influence
 Juvenile Honey Buzzard 
 Praying mantis sp
Slowly getting some tentative identifications on these moths- closest I can get to these (above and below) is Crescent Darts 

 Clancy's Rustic
Archer's Dart? 

Jacob has been enjoying the wild times
