Today was rather windy (a north-easterly) and also much cooler than the previous few days and by the looks of it has put the dampeners on migration with a notable drop in grounded passerines and vis-mig and large soaring birds visibly struggling to move forward . I started the day off at Cape Kaliakra where I met Andrew Bailey (a local ex-pat birder) and then after a work session on the plot spent the late afternoon and evening at the Shabla lakes complex. A few new trip ticks included Jack Snipe, Grey Partridge and Thrush Nightingale but new birds are slowing down fast now Ebird trip report here . Apparently it's been a late Spring, I haven't seen a single Red-backed Shrike this trip yet but presumably they will arrive soon as its generally a ubiquitous species in this region. I'm moving south tomorrow to meet up with Dylan and Anton for a few days herping in the Burgas/Standzha region but return back here mid-week for a few more days so will be interesting to see how things change in a few days time (a long time in Spring migration terms).
Nothing new in the moth trap in the cooler evening.
