Sorbulak, one point


2017-08-30| Gennadiy Dyakin

Катаясь по Сорбулаку решили с Санжаром перекусить. Для этого не выбирали специально "урожайное" место по птицам, а остановились где застало время обеда и было дерево для тени. Пока кушали, думаю минут 20, не сходя с места насчитали в зоне видимости 19 видов птиц! Очень хотелось юбилейную 20-ю, но не хотелось специально ждать. Да уж, в горах бывает за целый день всего столько увидишь.

2. Great Cormorant


3. Red-crested Pochard


4. Common Moorhen


5. Common Kingfisher


6. Ortolan Bunting
