Bird tour in Croatia: After finishing the hiking-trekking tour we have run a shorter 4WD birding tour for a private party to see some of the specialities of the Dalmatian coast. We had mega-prolonged views of Rock Partridges and Sombre Tits, not to mention the usual stuff, incl. Rock Nuthatch, Rock Trush, Blue Rock Thrush, Alpine Cough, Black-headed Bunting, Rock Bunting, Audouin's Gull, Griffon Vultures, Eleonora's Falcon and a pair of Lanner, next to Dubrovnik. We also had great encounters with several butterfly-rarities, incl. Nettle-tree Butterfly, Lang's Short-tailed Blue, Mountain Argus, the very local Dalmatian Ringet and one Iolas Blue, furthermore many Mountain Small Whites and Southern Small Whites. I never seen so many Southern White Admirals and Southern Festoons like this year, just like Marsh Fritillaries at newly discovered sites. There was also a mass gradation of Black-veined Whites, which was very memorable.
