And Ural Owl Wins It!

So another birding tour successfully completed... highlights included dazzling Bee-eaters in several colonies, a Black Woodpecker looking out of its nest-hole, masses of herons and egrets, a total of 8 different Sakers, 2 majestic Eastern Imperial Eagles, hoardes of superb Red-footed Falcons and 3 White-tailed Eagles. But, in the end, the ultimate highlight was judged to be those Ural Owls in the Bukk Hills... especially the bird that swooped past us, alighted on a bare branch and peered at us... great views!
