MONDAY 30th MARCH 2015

11°C, wind light from South, mostly overcast with brighter intervals.
Paljuvi Lake Kolubara & Jabucje village centre Kolubara

Paljuvi Lake - 
Ospreys were a great surprise and all to brief, both birds on their way out when I saw them, the first moving out NE and the possible second an hour later, moving out NE/E.
The Harriers came in late and were difficult to observe. First 2 together then a third following closely behind. I was wondering if they could be using a common roost site ?
Good selection of duck with great views of spanking male Gargany's pestering a female. 
Little Egret is early for here I think.Had fabulous long head plume.
First Long Eared owls in Serbia for me and so nice to find my own. Right in the middle of the village with noisy vehicles and lights near by. The young were in conifers calling and the adult did a fly by on a couple of occasions.
