Hula Festival update day 1 - Rainbow Festival

Just a short one - arrived at noon at the Hula Festival with MG & TR. had a nice drive up north through some serious rain but when we arrived at Hula the sky cleared up nicely. After meeting the group went on a short introductory tour to the Agamon. Very atmospheric afternoon with special light conditions - bright, low sunlight against dark clouds, double rainbow - tens of thousands of cranes going through this beautiful sky. Lots of pelicans raptos, Pygmy Cormorants etc up in the air. In the lake Moustached Warbler, Greater Flamingo etc. One massive bull Wild Boar waded across the lake before dusk. Won't say anything about an Oriental Turtle Dove...
