We birded this morning in Ramosch — a small village in the eastern tip of Switzerland.
We finally saw a flock of Tree Sparrows (Red cap, black cheek, white collar, small bib).
We also picked up Common Sandpiper and Gray Wagtail — though no photos of either.
We also saw a male Whinchat.
We then headed through Austria back to northeast Switzerland. We went this way to avoid going over the mountains. Instead we went under them — through four 4-mile tunnels and one 8.6-mile tunnel (and many shorter ones)!
We are spending tonight in St Gallen. Tomorrow morning, we will bird the areas that we did in mid-afternoon on our day of arrival. Then on to the airport and home.
We expect to arrive home around 11:30 pm tomorrow. I have a bunch of Bird Screen orders to fill, PSO duties, and PAMC stuff to attend to before I will finish up the trip blog.
I will be adding a large section of non-birding stuff — from hotels to habitat descriptions, etc. So tune in again in a few days.
The trip list is 97 with 76 lifers.
Only a few photos today.
