Bulgaria Day Eight

A great day around Atanasovsko Lake, Roger and I dropped Dylan off at the train station at around 7am and then headed to the wader hide watch point before heading over to the migration watch point. Then lunch, a bit more vis-migging, then some more waders before doing dusk back at the watch point. Highlights included over 5000 White Pelican coming in at dusk from the watch point, thousands of Barn Swallows,  migrating Black Kites, Short-toed Eagles, Honey Buzzards, Common Buzzards, Red-footed Falcons and Lesser Spotted Eagles and Temminck's Stints, Little Gulls and Dalmation Pelicans.
