Tuhu Soo and all that
Our journey from Haapsalu to the Parnu area today (in Estonia) took in several fascinating wetland and forest birding sites. Kloostri and other spots along the south shore of Matsalu Bay, Lake Tohela, the coast at Kavaru and the peat-bogs of Tuhu Soo and Lindi. We used some great board-walks and climbed some wobbly bird-towers. Birds included: Black Stork, Montagu's Harrier, Lesser Spotted, Golden and White-tailed Eagles, Arctic Skua, Icterine Warbler and a Thrush Nightingale singing right out in the open. Tomorrow it is 5am start, so I will keep this one short.
