Weather This Year
Terrible year for weather. I have written about the long winter, the snow, about Estonia and the frozen sea, and now we have heavy rain and high winds in Hungary... now in May. What is going on ? I just finished another tour, with a group of great folks from Sweden, and we "lost" a day and a half because of the weather. No one complained though and we still got the main targets... Great Bustards, lots of Red-footed Falcons, Saker, Eastern Imperial Eagle, Middle Spotted and White-backed Woodpeckers (both feeding young), Rock Bunting, Bee-eaters, Rollers, and Moustached Warbler. Out-door pursuits are always at the mercy of the elements, but this year is at times tough.
