Black sea port of Varna

Arrived on the ship Tuesday and waiting for the fuel barge to arrive meant a six hour wait in port- a chance to have a brief look about. Not many birds evident- a couple of dozen black headed and yellow-legged gulls and a few pied wagtails on the wharf. Interestingly a good raft of wintering coot in the harbour- probably in excess of 400 birds- the biggest gathering of this species I have ever seen. A fly-by kingfisher was a bonus bird.
