    Trystan's 2022 World List

    21st August Currently no means of transport but looking at what has been available against what I picked up on the last day out and this one, again relying on a lifts, I think I've probably only lost out on a couple of species by way of Stilt & Pectoral sandpipers, and still waiting on Water...

    25th June Gruelling travel day with delays on both flights and road closures on the drive home in the small hours but an unexpected Polish tick at the airport (Since I seem to have gotten a bit obsessive over keeping a list for each country I visit, however briefly), a pair of wheatears back...

    23rd June Final country of the trip added today. More of the same species plus Grey wagtail. Didn't get to stop and bird as much as I'd have liked as on a guided tour. A few singing birds like blackcap, blackbird and lesser whitethroat heard but not seen so don't make the trip list. Kosovo -...

    12th June Langford Lowfield 232. (224.) Great reed warbler Excellent showy bird giving scope filling views. After this, headed up towards Potteric but negative news on the Purple heron saved me an entrance fee. Always reluctant to spend money with the YWT after their appalling actions with...

    15th May Headed off to try another wood warbler site while waiting for new to decide if Spurn or Gibraltar point might have retained any of yesterdays birds. Instead found myself heading to Idle valley followed by a futile search for Rustic bunting near Grimsby. Rivelin 217. (208.) Wood...
