23 november - back to the coast

We slowly headed back west this morning, stopping to enjoy Beaudouin's Snake-eagle, Grasshopper Buzzard, Vieillot's Barbet and Yellow Penduline Tits (among many other species)



After a picnic lunch at Brumen bridge we scanned the skies for raptors, seeing White-headed Vulture and being disturbed by the constant groups of Little Swifts
We also had this confusing raptor that flew over. Sering called it instantly as a Wahlberg's Eagle, and searching on the net backs this up. Strange looking beast though, with the tail shape quite broad in comparison with many other Wahlberg's seen.
This Senegal Thick-knee allowed close approach
Blue-bellied Rollers were seen on roadside wires
And at our site for Greyish Eagle Owl (we saw 2 amazingly well hidden birds) we saw this singing Red-winged Warbler
and shortly before we had seen both White-shouldered Black Tit and this brilliant Yellow-bellied Hyliota (only my 2nd ever!)
