Friday, March 11 - Late Afternoon

Checked out the confluence of the Miljacka and Bosne Rivers - not much going on there other than a few Gray Herons and some Mallards. So I headed over the back route toward Dolovi on the Sarajevo map. Just west of the Bosne are some large open fields that have some standing water. Saw 2 Northern Lapwings (Vanellus vanellus), Green Sandpipers (Tringa ochropus) as well as at least 10 more Gray Herons (Ardea cinarea), White Wagtails (Motacilla alba), Fieldfares (Turdus pilaris) and two Redwings (Turdus iliacus).

Most intriguing, but alas unconfirmed, I almost certainly twice heard Common Crane (Grus grus) in the distance, but I could not verify the source of the sound.
