SW Turkey Bird Trip - Saturday 2nd to 11th May 2015

Wednesday 6th May 2015.

Back in our original hotel, so we went for a pre-breakfast walk.

My only photographic record of Smyrna Kingfisher

Today, we went to Mugla Canyon and Gokova Marshes. Two very different habitats to explore, in Mugla we were looking for Ruppell's Warbler, Eastern Orphean Warbler, Barred Warbler, Cirl Bunting and White-throated Robin.

We did have good sightings of Ruppell's Warbler (new bird for me), Eastern Orphean Warbler and Cretzschmar's Bunting.

At Gokova Marshes, we were rewarded with good views of Penduline Tit, Turtle Dove and White-winged Black Tern.
