Day three of my Virgil waiting for The Red-breasted Geese to arrive at Lake Shabla. So far Monty's and Marsh Harriers Merlin. Peregrine. Goshawk. Sparrowhark. White Tailed Eagle. This morning a flock of Fieldfare arrived and shortly after I saw my first Brambling of the year. Waiting isn't so bad. Some photos to follow.

The staff at Poda are hard working and have a wealth of knowledge that they take pleasure in sharing. Peter cleaning out the sluice,
