Siberian Rubythroat

Was the weekend in the Netherlands and had the opportunity to see the Siberian Rubythroat Calliope calliope, that is already present for a few weeks. A first for the Netherlands and a real pearl it is! Species 448 for my dutch list!
Saw the wintering Pallid Harrier near my home town as well...

The bird is mimicring some siberian species, such as Yellow-browed Warbler and Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler...
