Lesser Whitethroats, Common Whitethroat and Booted Warblers. Warblers were in numbers less than recently, and also Warblers were shyer in my opinion, probably on account of many people. Also I shot Ortolan Bunting and saw one Grey Wagtail on fountains. [...... read more ]

But Steppe Eagles were much more, from Ak Mektep till turning to Ayaguz I countered 11 Steppe Eagles including group of three birds near crushed fox. All eagles were juveniles or subadults. In addition to Eagles I saw Kites (5 birds), Long-legged Buzzards (I countered 8 birds and stop count, Buzzards were very variable from almost white to very dark), about five Pallid Harriers, some Kestrels. On asphalt there were a lot of Short-toed Larks, White, Yellow and Masked Wagtails. In canes I noted pair of Great Cormorants and probably yesterday's White Egret. Also saw unidentified Ducks and one adult male of Pallid Harrier. On gasoline station near Aksuat turning I saw a lot of Swallows, White Wagtails, Common Starlings (which I confused with Mynahs) and female Redstart.I want to say about Quail specially.
