|Rock Partridge habitat|
The day started bright and sunny and we set off for the hills in the National Park again. On the way up a very confiding male Rock Bunting allowed me to take pictures from the vehicle. We all gathered up and started our search for the Rock Partridge. Despite much effort we failed again despite birds being seen here last Friday.

Eventually cloud moved in and rain threatened and we had to leave the mountain. We drove back through our base village of Koprivshtitsa where we noted a White Stork on a nest and headed for the wonderful beech woods at Bogdan Forest. This superb woodland sits at 1600 metres towering above the landscape. We saw flocks of Yellowhammers and Skylarks on the way and eventually climbed up to the woods.
