So why is Italy so poor for birding?? The habitat is outstanding, mixed wooded hillsides with plenty of Olive and Oak plantations and its September!!! Thought I would be tripping over migrants ......nope.
My first afternoon I found a Wood Warbler in the garden and .........................that was it.
Second day was an awesome day. A day trip to, on and around the island of Capri, what a superb place and in between the boozing on the boat and site seeing just managed a couple of spot fly's a brief Sardinain warbler, Black Kite and several Honey Buzzard through.
Third day - Wedding - drunk.
Fourth Day - Hangover - still drunk
Day five - chillout around pool before home! All dark eagle sp over + HB thru, Swallow.
Italy Trip list :
aaaahhh a bird, this was about the only bird I saw without it doing the bolt!!
(probably because I stunned it with a bread roll!!)
