Pectoral Sandpiper

Autumn update

After long and unpredictable year of pandemic this autumn, we finally had an opportunity to welcome some guests and have nice birding experience through Lithuania. We had groups from UK and Belgium during the peak of migration and this was great time to witness peculiarity of Baltic flyway. The autumn tour covers birding in one of the oldest forest in the region surrounded by Nemunas loop, then following greatest Lithuanian river and spotting birds alongside up to its delta, where migration times gives best chances for rarities and this autumn group with Urban Birder confirmed this award by finding Pectoral Sandpiper which was only 5th record for Lithuania!
