Birding near Zagreb

Dear birders,

I have booked one week holiday in July with flights to Zagreb. I was planning to go to Plitvicka Jezera and probably to the nearby coast of Croatia and Slovenia and will have a car.

I am specially interested in some birds that would be lifers to me (list below). If possible any help with places to see these species during July in that area are highly appreciated, thanks!

Black-headed bunting
Mediterranean Shearwater
Levant Sparrowhawk
Audouin's Gull
Lanner
Rock Partridge
Barn Owl
Rock Thrush
Olive-tree Warbler
Sombre Tit
Rock Nuthatch
Wallcreeper
Stone Curlew
Alpine Accentor
Eastern Bonelli's Warbler
Moustached Warbler

All the best!
-Finbirder

To limit my question a little bit, out route will be around
Zagreb-Plitvicke-mt.Ucka-Koper-Lake Bled-Ljubljana-Zagreb.
Any chance of species mentioned around that area?
I have heard that maybe in Ucka mountain Rock partridge and rock thrush would be possible?
Maybe Aloine Accentor too or even Wallcreeper?
