|Lesvos - 2004 Photo Album - Part I
Bee Eaters were showing exceptionally well this year by the East river Ford:
To add even more colour, the Black-headed Buntings had returned earlier than usual
With Rollers also passing through in small numbers
A Chukar watches the world go by...
Cinereous Bunting, one of the island's star birds
Creczschmar's Bunting singing everywhere in the hillsides
While a Cirl Bunting demands a refund from Interflora
Good numbers of migrating Flycatchers, including this male Collared, here alongside
a more common Goldfinch
House Martins busy nest-building
A Hooded Crow drops in for a drink
Migrating Swallows in large numbers
Singing Orphean Warbler, the "poor man's Nightingale"
Migrating Red-throated Pipits pose in the picturesque flower meadows
Purple Heron doing the same
Temminck's Stint quietly resting in the shallows
The Yellow-legged Gulls are less retiring and discreet
Little Ringed Plovers not showing much discretion either
Glossy Ibis coming in to land
And Greater Flamingo too
Stone Curlew resting in the meadows....
