Again I’ve been slow to update my blog. But I have been birding a little during the summer. In the end of May I visited Beypazari and Inözü vadisi.
As always it is a stunning place and the birding is good. The best surprise was more than 500 Rose-colored Starlings migrating through the valley.
Another surprise was a gathering of raptors including 20+ Black Vultures, 2 Lammergeiers, Eastern Imperial Eagle, Golden Eagle and Egyptian Vulture.
Other good birds included Masked Shrike, Turtle Dove, Golden Oriole, Sardinian Warbler and more.
