Second national BirdID training: day 4 - the end

The last day of the training was planned for the conifer forest. We collected tents and gear and down we went to a lovely track in the middle of a coniferous forest. En route we had more Nutcrackers, Bullfinches, Crossbills, Wren, Blackcap, Great-spotted Woodpecker and a group of 20+ Pallid Swifts that have bread under the gutter of a chalet by the car park.

The track was fairly quiet. There were many flowers and some butterflies but birds weren't abundant. Still, we managed to get a Dipper, Grey Wagtail, a high flying Black Stork and lots of wild strawberries that distracted the participants from my talks.
