Today I almost didn’t do any birding. It has been very windy the whole day in Göksu, so birding was very hard. Non the less Wim (a dutch guy who is living and birding all year round in the area) found two Cyprus Wheatears, so the arrival of new birds was evident.
I went out for about one hour. I found a small flock of Black-winged Stilts and other common stuff. The most interesting was a male Finche’s Wheatear. I flushed it from the road side, but didn’t get and photos.
I then headed to the area where Wim had found the Cyprus Whearears. I didn’t find any, but a few kilometers further south I found one, which is probably a new bird. So all in all I saw 5 species of wheatear within an hour – Cyprus, Norhtern, Black-eared, Isabelline and Finche’s.
Hopefully the wind had brought some good birds that are just waiting to be found tomorrow.
