GERMANY 23-30 August 2011

A family holiday based in scenic Saarburg, with day trips to Luxembourg and Trier, provided opportunities for birding in the local forests but none for photography.  A Pine Marten heard climbing up a tree trunk and then spotlighted high in a pine one evening was my best sighting although I also saw a Honey Buzzard, 2 Red Kites, lots of Black Redstarts, 2 Firecrests, 3 Pied Flycatchers, 3 Willow and 10 Crested Tits, 5 Short-toed Treecreepers and 2 Serins.  12 Great Skuas were seen from the Calais to Dover Ferry on 30th heading west in very calm French waters.
