Greetings from Bulgaria

I am in Bulgaria for a few days with David Tomlinson and his tour company Gourmet birds.  Our main aim is to see an elusive and difficult species Rock Partridge.  We arrived at Sofia this afternoon and drove to some lovely hill, wooded country just to look for a few birds.  Almost the first bird we stopped for was a Sombre Tit very much a species of this area and a new bird for me.

With just and hour or two of daylight we also saw early House Martins,  Great Grey Shrike, Woodlark, Cirl Bunting, Rock Bunting and perhaps most impressive of all 3 Long-legged Buzzards.  I will be reporting each day so watch this space.
