A trip to the coast

After a hectic month in the Guesthouse we decided to have a few days break away on the coast.

On the drive between Silistra and Dobrich we stopped to photograph a fantastic sight of flocks of 100+ White Storks circling together preparing for migration.

We spent 4 great days in and around Shabla Lake and Lagoon.The Lagoon was looking particularly breathtaking at this time of year.We had some good sightings of:
Black-winged Stilt, Ruddy Shelduck, Bee-eater, Golden Oriole, Hoopoe, Lesser Grey Shrike, Black-headed Gull, Mute Swan, Common Tern and an abundance of Sand Martins feeding low over the Lagoon in the late afternoon.

We did have some time to relax on Krapets beach which Peggy enjoyed immensely!!
