Very Eastern Birds

Two days in Dobrudja, eastern Romania, and we have found some VERY eastern birds... a colony of 100s of pairs of Rose-coloured Starlings, Paddyfield Warbler, Pied and Isabelline Wheatears and Great Black-headed (aka Pallas's) Gull, for example. Besides these specialties we have seen Levant Sparrowhawk, Red-rumped Swallow, Sombre Tit, lots of White Pelicans, etc, etc. Quality birding by any standards. Tomorrow, on into the Danube Delta...
