EuroBirdwatch 2010: the wonder of migration
Mon, Oct 4, 2010
Over the past weekend, almost 60,000 people from 34 European countries enthusiastically took part in EuroBirdwatch 2010, BirdLife’s event to observe the fascinating migration of birds flying south for the winter.
Many BirdLife Partners across Europe, from Portugal to Turkey, from Malta to Finland, participated organising over 1,000 national events. …
Participants were excited to make observations of White-winged Lark Melanocorypha leucoptera in Sweden, Pectoral Sandpiper Calidris melanotos in Hungary and Finland, Peregrine Falcon Falco Peregrinus in Belarus, Lammergeier Gypaetus barbatus in Armenia and Great Grey Shrike Lanius excubitor in Ukraine.
With great surprise of birdwatchers, 34 Greater Flamingo Phoenicopterus roseus have been seen in Montenegro, the highest number in the last 115 years. The most frequently observed species were Common Starling Sturnus vulgaris and Mallard Anas platyrhynchos.

The melodious song of a Blackcap fills the air of an early summer morning, along with Redwings, Chaffinches, Willow Warblers and other northern birdsong. From across the water carries the occasional wild calling of Red-throated Loons: here.
