Liplje 10:15

The Ortolan flew in to top of Lime tree bordering our garden and began singing, gave five or six phrases and flew off. Didn't recognise the song so checked it immediately on-line on Zeno-canto to confirm what I had seen - a bunting with grey head and neck and a soft buffy orange breast/belly.
A first for me in Serbia, Liplje and the year !
First view of Golden Oriole, male briefly at top of front garden walnut tree.
