Corsica August 2017

 This was a 10 day trip combining some easy birding and a family holiday. Both the endemics were found easy enough when the habitat is reached. The higher forest at Col del Sorba produced the Nuthatch and Citril Finch on both visits, the Mediterranean race of Spotted Flycatcher  seemed to be fairly common.
