December 16th 2018 Birding trip to Chachuna Senctuary. We had sunny and warm day for December, also for few hours birding it was quite nice experience. It seems that some birds which are wintering in Chachuna are already there; such as Little Bustards (around 700 in total. We also had Seven Imperial Eagles, three Black Vultures, one Griffon Vulture. Dozens of Steppe Buzzards, one Long Leged Buzzard, Montagu’s, Hen and Pallid Harriers, Common Kastrel, Eurasian Hobby, Merlin, Little Owl. Dozens of Calandra and Sky Larks, Greenfinch, Fildfare, European Goldfinch. Also we observed on the Dali reservoir; Great Cormorants, Tufted Ducks, Great Egret, Grey Heron and some unidentified Guls. So far not much on the lake but in around one month there will be much more birds.
