Bulgaria – Lake Bourgas – 20th September 2011

Just back from a trip to Bulgaria, plenty to see with this being a massive migration route for birds moving through from eastern Europe to wintering grounds in Africa.

We experienced many birds but nothing as impressive as flocks of hundreds of White Pelicans.  In total we must have seen 5000 birds.

East Anglia Year Count: 156
Bulgarian Count: 120
Life bird count: 414. Year bird count: 253. Month bird count: 145 (Sep).
