Trip in western Mongolia - A. Bräunlich & J. Steudtner

I am currently on a 3-weeks trip through western Mongolia, together with Jürgen Steudtner. Jürgen has taken some superb photos which will appear on Birding Mongolia later. Just now we are having a one-day break after returning from the Mongolian Altai before continuing to the wetlands of the Basin of the Great Lakes. Highlight in the Altai was a breeding record of the globally threatened (Vulnerable) Hodgson’s Bushchat (White-throated Bushchat Saxicola insignis).
