Fantastic Venice but only 7 Birds!

Well it's the 28th and only the second post of the month.

We have just got back from having a wonderful time in Venice. As you may guess this wasn't a birding holiday just an opportunity for having a great time. Which we certainly did.

It's a very quite place on the birding front, unless you are into pigeons! Having said that of the 7 species we saw over the 5 days one was a lifer! Nothing exotic just a Yellow Legged Gull (actually 100's), it's s a species we haven't gone out of our way for in the UK as it looks just like any other Gull except for the legs!

The others were Little Egret,  Common Tern, Cormorant, Black headed Gull, House Sparrow and Feral Pigeon.
