Two Spotted Crakes and a single Little Crake kept very low profiles along the water's edge. Cetti's Warblers were noisy but invisible. A singing Great Spotted Cuckoo refused to show itself. This very loud and very shy Clamorous Reed Warbler took a great deal of patience to spot.
Many White Storks (35+) and Black Kites (40+) riding the morning thermals. While waiting for the CRW to show itself this fine looking Steppe Buzzard wheeled slowly overhead.
