Here are some pictures from Andrew Thompson who was on our Czech Republic trip this year.

We got great views of  a male Three-toed Woodpecker and he even did a little drumming for us.

Sometimes you get a Nightingale that does not mind showing itself!


The view from our hotel, the Border Chateau.



A beautiful male, Black Redstart.


At times, the Fire-bellied Toads, en masse, made a beautiful background noise at many wetland sites.


We had great views of many woodpeckers, including this Middle-spotted Woodpecker.


...and this male Black Woodpecker.


Collared Flycatchers are plentiful in some areas we visit.


There are some beautiful old towns and parks. This is Telc.


This young White-tailed Eagle was one of many that we saw over the week.


A happy group of birdwatchers!


Scarce Swallowtail was not so scarce on this itinerary.


We saw Great-crested Grebes displaying several times.


Great Reed Warblers were seen and heard regularly.


Savi's Warblers were seen each morning from the terrace of the Border Chateau.


Black Stork was  seen from the hotel grounds.


This Honey Buzzard flew directly above us.


We had great views of Black-crowned Night Herons.


This Firecrest showed its best feature, beautifully.
