Yeah, shoot first, ask later, that's the right approach, when talking about photography, as digital shots are free :) The Baltic coast is great to look for rarities, so carry on!

Id like to note that while Temminck's Lark is utterly absurd, Horned is actually perfectly within the possibilities for the location :)

I feel sorry for the fact that your impression of this area is based on a summer visit, because that's simply horrendous - the hordes of people that flock there in summer are unbearable. You should...

Heaven in Hel

The Hel Peninsula is the heart and soul of birding in Poland. I'd wager to guess that it's the key reason the rarity finder scene is now as vibrant as it is, simply because Hel is the one place that...

I have spent a lot of time looking for places to go to the jungle, turns out going back to YC has always been a great option I overlooked!

Yeah, no way I would see a MSW in this either, it screams "the big kind" at first sight by shape - GSW/WBW/Syrian. I would however leave the decision between those to the more knowledgeable :)

Okay then, thanks! I will still rather show you a Meadow than miss something better :) Pipits are a long standing mystery to me, especially in autumn.

Not the greatest photo in flight. Early morning light just after sunrise was giving a reddish tint to everything, so I am not sure, is this just Meadow, or Red-throated?
