THREE MUSKETEERS BIRDING AROUND EUROPE

Trumpeter Finch - Morocco
Love this picture - its the delicate way this little bird picks the seed from the plant.
Spectacled Warbler - Cyprus 2010
I must have got to close to this birds nest as it started to do 'i'm an injured bird' routine - thus the strange pose
Lesser Grey Shrike - Bulgaria 2014-5085
Nice juicy beetle to be had but first the bird needs to get past the shell
Grey Heron - Greece 2012
Early evening in Lake Kerkini in Northern Greece - the evening light gave this heron a golden glow as it glided over the lake from the far bank
Spur Winged Plover - Israel 2009
I feel that if Israel can get in the Eurovision Song Contest then I can include their birds in my European Gallery
Drake Garganey - Estonia 2015-0420
Light was awful when we came across two ducks on this small pond by the side of the road - managed to get a couple of shots off before the birds flew to an even darker part of the pond.
