9th October 2022 - Burgas Lakes, Ropotamo & Strandzha Mountains, Bulgaria

 I'd been meaning to go out birding since I moved to Bulgaria but work got in the way.  I finally got away out to the coast for a day trip with Dimiter Georgiev and we headed out from Burgas south towards the border with Turkey.  

We had a bumper day for woodpeckers, with 5 being seen including the lovely but elusive White-backed Woodpecker.  I met my target of both Pelicans (Great White Pelican and Damatian Pelican) so was chuffed with that.  The day was finished off with a new one for me, a Pallas's Gull.

My photos were abysmal so here are some flamingos and that's all I salvaged from my memory card. I saw 4 lifers so that was ace!
