Bulgaria – Albena Steepes – 23rd September 2011

If you head inland from Albena in the general direction of Batovo, you find a large area of plans and steppes.  It was here that we found it most productive for migrating raptors.

Ten's of Steepe Buzzards, Rough-legged Buzzard, twelve Red-footed Falcons and several Levant Sparrowhawks.  A proper feast for the eye!

East Anglia Year Count: 156
