Transylvania, May '24 (4) - Wallcreepers

A drive south into the mighty southern Carpathians (specifically the Piatra Craiului range), and to the dramatic Gorge of Zernyest - a narrow, claustrophobic, beautiful walk in search of local specialities...
... including Wallcreeper, Crag Martin, Alpine Swift and Short-toed Snake Eagle. We had a great day, and with a little effort, bagged the lot - and the Wallcreepers were outrageously accommodating (these photos taken after they'd moved further away).
