Birdwatcher's Log : 10/05/22

Yesterday I planned to develop a route for a future birdwatching tour, so I had to explore new paths and a passage through the forest.
And I remind you, these are screenshots of raw, unedited files. I just hastened to share with you my walk. Photos will be edited in the future.


My path started at the old cemetery. There are a lot of chaffinches, as always.


Many species of thrushes also live here. Redwing is one of them.


Here comes the common whitethroat. As expected, she was in fallen trees, and then flew to a branch.


Redstart compared to the last time, it has become more. Looks like young males have arrived.


Came to the forest. It is expected that at this time of the year there was a burning field. This happens every year.


White wagtails love to roam on such ashes. They seem to be looking for fried insects there.


Having entered the forest, I saw that the pied flycatchers also flew in. The male sang a song, and the female hid in a crevice in a tree. There probably their future nest.


Forest relatives of wagtails, tree pipits, sing songs in the forest with might and main. But almost all the time they spend below, on the ground in search of food.


While it is still spring, these coal tit sing songs and look for a partner. This species of tits lives mainly in coniferous forests, so after the mating season, many of them will fly away from here.


The great spotted woodpecker first sat drumming on the tree. But then a female flew in, and they began to fly one after another.


And this big man black woodpecker was screaming while sitting on a tree. I lured him to the sound and he flew past me. However, they fly loudly, flapping wings are clearly audible.


I walked on and suddenly two hares jumped out from the side! My God! This is the first time I see a hare alive! I have previously found their footprints in the snow, seen their droppings and shedding hair. And finally I saw it live! Apparently it's a white hare (mountain hare (Lepus timidus), also known as blue hare, tundra hare, variable hare, white hare, snow hare, alpine hare)
There were two of them. One hare ran far deep into the forest, and the second lingered not far from me. As I understand it, it was a male and a female, and the male diverted attention from the female. And then he also ran away. I followed them and they ran back. And then I saw a red stray dog. Apparently these bunnies were running away from her.


Then there was a difficult transition through the channel of the stream and marshland.


And by the way there were a lot of birds by the river. Arrived at the watering place.
Here is the brambling.


Greenfinch ate fresh buds.


There are surprisingly many siskins this year.


The long-tailed titis have not been seen for a long time, and here they are, by the river.


The nuthatches were in pairs. Even in the wild, they are not afraid of humans.


View from the hill to the river.


While I was resting, a wryneck flew into the bushes. I had to finish the rest and run to photograph her.


This is the end of my 9 hour walk.
