Back From South Moravia

Well winter will not go away. It was cold, often below zero in Moravia. But it was dry and clear and we got some great birds, a mix of woodland and wetland. Such as, Greater White-fronted, Greylag and Bean Geese, several handsome drake Smew, lots of Goosanders in pairs, Red-crested Pochard, Red Kite, 6 different White-tailed Eagles, Syrian, Middle Spotted and Black Woodpeckers, Great Grey Shrike, tons of Tree Sparrows, close-ups of Hawfinches and Penduline Tits and Long-eared Owls in two different roosts. Lots of fresh signs of Beavers, too. We even found time to visit a wine festival...
