Bulgaria Day Eleven- back to Kamen Bryag

Back 'home' now at Kamen Bryag. Got five full days here now to do some work on the plot and also do some birding, mothing and botanising in the region. This morning I started off at Cape Kaliakra, then checked out Cape Shabla area, then Shabla Tuzla, then Lake Shabla and then back to the plot. Ebird lists HERE , HERE and HERE . New trip birds included Spoonbill, Slender-billed Gull, Spotted Flycatcher and Grey Partridge. 

Great Reed Warbler 
Greater Flamingo- a bit of a rarity in the region which have had an influx this year. This flock was over Cape Kaliakra. 
Pied Wheatears fighting- also saw some hybrids today but will do a separate post of them 
Slender-billed Gulls on the move
Turtle Dove
Wood Sandpiper
Tawny Pipit
Olivaceous Wabler at Cape Kaliakra
Barn Swallow
Female Spanish Sparrow- quite distinctive with heavy black bill and also streaking on breast (not visible in this shot)
Still seems strange to be seeing so many Black-throated Divers out here, Arctic Loon?
