Chorokhi Delta in mid August

Preparations for this year's autumn count are in full swing and the first counters have also arrived. Luckily there was still some time to visit the Chorokhi Delta and around 70 species were observed.

Highlights were: White Storks (83x), Spoonbills (3x), Terek Sandpipers (4x), Broad-billed Sandpipers (5x), Marsh Sandpipers (5x) Temminck's Stint (2x) and Isabelline Wheatear (8x).

Meanwhile the application form for raptor counters in autumn 2014 has been closed as the schedule is full. We are happy for the interest in our programme and looking forward to meet you in Batumi!
