Linosa Day One

2 November 2011

Bit tricky to get here after plane from Palermo cancelled, next one in 5 days! So Lucio (v grateful for him) and I got a bus and then the overnight ferry to Linosa from Sicily- 2 first winter Med Gulls followed us in, then I was hit by an avalanche of Black Redstarts. Everywhere!. Best a ‘dodsoni’ Desert Grey Shrike in first winter plumage (look it up!), a Yellow-browed Warbler, Eleonora’s Falcon, a yakutensis-type Willow Warbler, 11 Hawfinch in one flock,  and lots more. For now these from today
