12/9/2019 - Yerevan, Armenia

Made it to the host city for this conference! Severely jet-lagged so didn't have any energy for birding or sightseeing really. Got one year tick aimlessly pottering around down at around dusk.

403. * Laughing Dove

14/9/2019 - Armash, Armenia

First day's proper birding in Armenia, and my first time birding with a guide! Fantastic day at the Armash fish ponds on the Turkish border today! Got both the site specialties (lapwing and bee-eater), but the only roller sighting was extremely far away, which was slightly disappointing. Very good day regardless:

406. * White-Tailed Lapwing
407. Western Yellow Wagtail
408. * Blue-Cheeked Bee-Eater
409. Bearded Reedling
410. Wood Sandpiper
411. * White-Winged Tern
412. * European Roller
413. * Purple Heron
414. * Spanish Sparrow
415. * Pygmy Cormorant
416. * Eurasian Penduline Tit
417. * Squacco Heron

15/9/2019 - Yerevan, Armenia

A morning up at Victory Park in Yerevan gave a few more for the life list, including another one of the year's top birds! Incredibly confiding wryneck at close range was a real treat to see

418. Spotted Flycatcher
419. * Eurasian Wryneck
420. * Syrian Woodpecker
421. * Red-Breasted Flycatcher
422. Lesser Whitethroat
423. * Icterine Warbler
