Driving through Biebzra Marshes for the final time, and taking the opportunity to stop at regular intervals, there were plenty of singing Wood Warbler, Redstart, Tree Pipit, and Pied Flycatcher.
I was keen to catch up with White-Winged Tern, a species that was relatively easy to locate on the last trip. This time however was a real struggle drawing an unexpected blank.
We headed over to Goniadz which was great for marsh terns last time around, and it wasn't bad this time either with around 25 Black Tern there. This is a great site with a lot of potential, with a half hour stopover here producing an adult White-tailed Eagle, Spotted Eagle, and a Black Stork pretty much in one single view distantly across the marsh.
Two Crane became agitated as we walked closer toward them, and a male Whinchat sat on top of a small bush.
It was an eventful drive back to Warsaw with torrential rain making driving quite interesting.
