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

Saturday 9th May 2015.

Today we headed for Saklikent Radar Station with the hope of seeing Snowfinch.

The air was so fresh and the views were magnificent. After walking up a little further along the path were spotted some Snowfinches. At least 2 or 3 were flying around the top ledges giving good but brief views. The hillside was good for Shorelark (penicili), Finsch's Wheatear, Northern Wheatear, Water Pipit (coutelli).

New birds added to the list.
Black Redstart
Rock Sparrow
Snowfinch (lifer for me)
Caspian Tern (seen from the hotel at breakfast)
