Just got back from an amazing two-week holiday in western Poland with Simeon and Connor. We scooped 155 species - amazing for the time of year - including a few species not really recorded in the area before, and birds such as Black Woodpecker, Aquatic Warbler and White-tailed Eagle. We should be well-equipped for autumn migration! Other highlights included bouts of tripod jousting, a day trip in a dinghy, and wading through leech-infested swamp. I'll let you know when Simeon, Connor or I have finished out trip reports so you can read them or just look at the photos. Thanks to Wiktoria for her help and information on her amazing country!
