Here are lists of the birds and mammals I saw or heard on the trip. Other people saw some of the species listed as heard-only. I didn't include heard-only species that I've never seen before. Life birds are in blue bold.

The 113 life birds included representatives of 4 life families: Glareolidae (Collared Pratincole), Upupidae (Eurasian Hoopoe), Panuridae (Bearded Reedling), and Cettiidae (Cetti's Warbler).

If the order seems a little strange, it's because it is my own interpretation of current information about what the taxonomic order should be (TiF Checklist).
