Bobbing for entrails

No holiday would be complete without a visit to the local dump. Not content with the huge municipal festering mass at the roadside, we also managed to track down the nearby abattoir's refuse arrangements. The feral dogs, corvids, Armenian Gulls and an Egyptian Vulture seemed very pleased with the fetid pile of sheep intestines, skin and horn. The most prized offal appeared to be the bloating floating stomachs in the shallows of the adjacent reservoir. A photographic opportunity not to be missed. Earlier in the day several singing Paddyfield Warblers were the best of the bunch at the excellent Ercek Golu.
