Sardinian (and maybe Subalpine) warbler and Black-headed bunting - when and where? (1 Viewer)


New member
I'm going to Croatia for about 7-10 days in April/May and I'm not sure when is the best time for a few species I'm interested in (Sardinian warbler - maybe also Eastern Subalpine warbler, but this species is probably rare in northern Croatia - and Black-headed, Cirl and Rock buntings, Zitting cisticola (Scops owl, Blue rock thrush, Northern bobtail and Rock partridge would be also great, but not a must). I care about the large number of these species (especially Sardinian/Subalpine warblers, Black-headed/Zirl/Rock bunting in one place (mini-region) to be sure to meet them and be able to enough photograph them (so it would be best if they were not in the telescope distance). Because I will come with an infant, I have no possibility of walking in the mountains, I was thinking about driving a car in the immediate vicinity of the place of accommodation and walking on easier terrain.
I'm thinking about a week between 20.04-20.05., but I don't know which time is the best.
I'm afraid that Sardinian warblers are not breeding here, so there are not too many of them. Do I have to go to the south of Croatia to watch the species I am interested in, or is it possible in Istria?
