Dobšiná (Slovakia) on 3rd June 2008

In the early afternoon, whilst the rest of the group visited the Ice Cave for which this place is famous, I had a wander round the station area, as I had seen White Wagtail and Serin on our arrival. Having taken some photos of White Wagtails, and Woodland Ringlet butterflies, much to my delight a Common Rosefinch landed on a bush close to me on the station approach road. Unfortunately it did not stay long – I subsequently read that you can often call these up with a high-pitched wolf whistle! After this I found Willow Tit, Serin and Whinchat. It was the Rosefinch, however, that made this hour special for me.
