A great tour with a great ‘team’ of birders, everyone contributed and everyone found something for the
list. This was the first attempt by WINGSPAN to combine these 3 contrasting and unique habitats, it
really worked well. We amassed an incredible sightings list of 170 species and heard Common Quail
so we actually recorded 171.
If I listed all the great sightings this summary would go on for ages but here are just a few of the

Woodpecker, Ring Ouzel, Water Pipit, Wryneck, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Black Bellied Sandgrouse,
Great Spotted Cuckoo & Golden Eagle. A mouth-watering list indeed!
