Bird Watching trip

Went on a bird watching trip today, started off driving up to Alan a high plateau above Koycegiz.

Birds seen Northern Wheatear, Isabelline Wheatear, Whinchat (juvenile), Masked Shrike (juvenile), Red backed Shrike (female).

On the drive back to Koycegiz spotted a Woodchat Strike on the overhead wires



after lunch in Koycegiz walked along the lakeside and in a wooded area saw Greater spotted woodpecker and Lesser spotted woodpecker.

How did I ever find time to work

Re: Bird Watching trip

You are privileged to see the masked shrike John.l heard they are on the endangered list and quite rare.l also saw one of these beautiful birds in a place called crem in Bulgaria.And was over joyed by this encounter.The photo in my head will never be erased.Thank God for that,because l did not have a camera at the time

Re: Bird Watching trip

Although they are on the red list for endangered species they are rated as "Least Concern".

Quoted from http://www.iucnredlist.org

In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 35000-100000 breeding pairs, equating to 105000-300000 individuals (BirdLife International 2004). Europe forms 50-74% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 142000-600000 individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed.

But still a nice bird to see.
