Further signs of migration at the fishponds

This morning I spent about 4 hours in the brand new observation tower in a hope to see some nice migrants. Weather was quickly warming up and reaced 30˚C by midday what forced me to leave the tower. During my stay I saw the following interesting species:

Black Stork 1
White Stork 1
White-tailed Eagle 1 juv.
Western Marsh Harrier 3
Common Buzzard 2
Long-legged Buzzard 1 juv.
Northern Goshawk 1 male
Eurasian Sparrowhawk 2
Eurasian Hobby 2
Peregrine Falcon 1 juv.
Common Greenshank 10 migrating
European Bee-eater 58
European Golden Oriole 1 male migrating
Red-backed Shrike 2
