Birding on the 1st day of a new decade

I don’t keep birding on the first day of the year a tradition but if I have a chance I go out. Today the weather was too pleasant to stay home so we decided to take Kea and the binocular out.

Birding wise, the little bit more than an hour outing, was surprisingly productive. I decided to keep a year list first time ever for the reason to know how much I can see through the year in Hungary and the . Bellow the list of birds seen today.
