Joy & Martin from Isle of Skye joined me during Late Spring Tour and had a wonderful week full of wildlife. Many birdwatchers has been coming to Poland for woodpeckers but Martin suprisingly has seen all of them in Estonia so we had other birds to look for – warblers mostly.
On the evening excursion in Białowieża Forest we also had 2 wolves!
