Birding trip: the end

Here comes the end of our 5 day long birding trip in the Western part of the country. We had a total of over 110 species.

On the last day of our trip we did a quick visit to the nearby marsh which resulted in a few new birds. Some of the birds we managed to see for an hour birding were Bittern, Purple Heron, Great White Egret, Lesser Grey Shrike, Marsh Warbler, Black-headed Bunting and a few other more common birds.

“You did a great job”, said one of the guests and left for their long flight to the USA.
