Venice 23-27 Feb

Fantastic to be in Venice when it is uncrowded, with clear blue skies although distinctly chilly.

On the lagoons, Black-Necked and Great Crested Grebes. Herring, Yellow-Legged and Black Headed Gulls overhead with Grey Heron, Jackdaw and Cormorant also around.

Dabchick, Robin, Blackbird and Wren on Torcello.

Heard first Chiffchaff of the year from the garden of the Incurables on Guidecca. Tree Sparrow nearby.
